• Landscape Forms receives 2012 Good Design Awards

    27 February 2013

    Landscape Forms, the industry’s premier global brand of outdoor furniture and LED lighting is pleased to announce that The European Centre for Architecture Art Design and Urban Studies, and The Chicago Athenaeum: Museum of Architecture and Design, have awarded both the CityBench and Bryant Park Litters with a 2012 Good Design Award.

    CityBench-backedThe Good Design program was founded in Chicago in 1950 by Eero Saarinen, Charles and Ray Eames and Edgar Kaufmann, Jr.. The awards aim to give international recognition for designers and manufacturers when they devise innovative products, through invention and originality, beyond what is considered ordinary product and consumer design.

    One of the main factors for the awards selection is based on whether or not a product can enrich society and people’s lives through its design. The CityBench and Bryant Park Litter Receptacles were designed by Ignacio Ciocchini for Chelsea Improvement Company and Bryant Park Corporation respectively.

    Notably, CityBench is now a New York City Department of Transportation standard being used for many streetscape projects throughout the metropolitan area. See further products from Landscape Forms on page 50 of the February issue of PRC Magazine.
