Cox Urban Furniture Urban Edge Range – Custom configuration

 

The City of Fremantle’s Activation strategy for the jointly funded High Street Mall project, proposed to reactivate the space, increase pedestrian traffic and encourage new tenants to the area. This was to be achieved by improving way-finding strategies and enhancing the urban streetscape with new, thoughtfully considered site furniture. The customisation of Cox Urban Furniture’s ‘Urban Edge’ range was proposed as a time efficient and cost effective way to introduce bespoke seating elements to the High Street Mall project.

In close liaison with the Council project team, Cox Urban Furniture designed six different modules, combining triangular platforms and tables with modified lineal seats and stools, visually connected by the central aluminium portal frame characteristic of the ‘Urban Edge’ range

Manufactured by Altiform, the geometric seating arrangements punctuate the mall at strategic locations, folding around existing trees and infrastructure and providing a large number of shady seating and eating opportunities. The seating geometry created, enables individuals or groups of people to occupy the same seating node within close proximity to others, whilst maintaining their personal space.

CAD drawings are available on the various configurations designed for the High Street Mall Project, or additional designs can be created for specific custom projects.
