“I don’t want to design strict solutions…I am mainly looking for new possibilities.”
Streetscape seeks to explore how street furniture inhabits and relates to its surroundings, looking at how the everyday and how we negotiate our urban spaces can inspires new products for the public realm. From bollards, bike stands to public benches these generally anonymously designed, often unnoticed, objects are the workhorses of the built environment.
Taking into consideration the provenance, uses and contexts of the existing street furniture, in consultation with the Royal Borough of Kingston, we have designed a series of prototypes that aim to sit comfortably amongst what is already in situ whilst making an interesting improvement on what was previously there.
