In the same vein as @LuckyLuke, here is some illuminated seating from one of my two home-towns (at university), Exeter:



... and here they are in the context of the square:



They are also pretty durable, and so a lot of children play on them when they're not being sat on. I think that's a perfect example of good urban furniture; that different people can get different things from the same object.

Street furniture design competition

I think this may interest a lot of you, because it is not so often that we can have a competition about this subject that we love all: Street furniture


Public Space Design Competition, “Precast Concrete Urban Furniture & Sport” is a new international open competition of ideas to reveal talents and fresh ideas that can benefit to the community.

It is open to students and young professionals up to 30 yrs old. Competition is anonymous (not based on reputation but talent) and there is no fee to enter.

Candidates in the field of architecture, design, landscape, urban planning, engineering are invited to challenge themselves, discover a new material and process for them that is precast architectural concrete, and design precast concrete elements in relation with theme of Street Furniture and Sport.

Candidates are invited to think openly on what could be the streets if we would add some sport or invite people to do exercises. After all, street can be entertaining, relaxing or inviting us to stay fit with pleasure. Benches, bollards, litter bins, planters, lights, bicycle racks, retaining walls, … are a small example of the wide range of products that are there to help us or please us in a city.

Ideas of candidates must be made of precast architectural concrete. Accent is made on accessibility, “design for all” and eco-design.

Candidates are invited to present their ideas in sketches, precisely one idea on maximum 2x A3 paper sheets to submit in PDF.

3 winners will receive a prize money of respectively 1000 €, 600 € or 400 €. A prototype will be produced among the three first prizes by the sponsor and will be exhibited at “Brussels Street Furniture Expo” on 4-5 the February.

There will be a publication of the runner-ups. Their number depends on the decision of the jury.

Here is the link for more info and to register: Precast Architectural Concrete Competition, Urban Furniture & Sport
Regulations are on the bottom of the page.

This short time competition, until 30 November 2014 at midnight is organized and controlled by UDB (Professional Union of Designers in Belgium) and the regulations comply with the highest international standards and respect of the rights of each participant. www.udb.org

E-mail of the competition manager: [email protected]

Good luck to all the ones who create and think outside the frame to improve our environment!


They have also a Facebook page to follow the developments of the competition during this month: https://www.facebook.com/urbastyle?fref=ts
