Who we are
AREA’s four main families of street furniture are:
TREES, combining all forms of furniture to protect and highlight plant life against an urban backdrop.
STREETS, presenting matching furniture in line with the development of different ways of getting around town.
TIME OUT, proposing all forms of seating, litter-bins and fountains to enhance the comfort and cleanliness of public places.
GETTING AWAY, offering new perspectives to revamp urban areas, combining relaxation, sport and leisure activities.
Since 1987, AREA has been a forerunner in creating street furniture in France. It has built up a recognized identity by fostering its own distinctive approach to sector design:
FREE: imagining tomorrow’s city with boundless vision
CREATIVE: observing how urban behaviours develop and providing innovative solutions
SUSTAINABLE: taking direct interest in projects along with public space designers and showing core concern for end-users by empowering them in the design of their environment.
