Urban furniture design for city park
We worked in coordination with a diverse group of specialists to transform Aragon park into a functional and beautiful space. This park is the 2nd largest green space in Mexico City. In 2011 it was partially abandoned, unsafe, and in a severe state of deterioration. Alongside the signage project, which we also developed, we designed a range of urban furniture elements. The main criteria was that they be highly resistant and unappealing to vandals. They also needed to look modern and require minimum maintenance.
We began with a research and analysis stage in collaboration with key stakeholders and other specialists. This allowed us to understand and determine exactly what was needed and the existing problems and challenges. We designed benches, bins, picnic tables, hammock posts, bollards, and cycle parking in a clean, modern style. We chose the colours to be visible, yet unobtrusive in the natural surroundings. We used steel with a tough power-coated finish for maximum durability.
