Chapultepec Park

Urban furniture design for a major city park

Providing furniture for millions

Chapultepec park is the largest green area in Latin America, attracting over 15 million visitors per year. In collaboration with the renowned landscape architect Mario Schjetnan and his studio GDU, we designed urban furniture and signage for this historic city forest.

The brief was to design modern and durable street furniture which would fit well in the historic surroundings. Alongside the main signage project, we designed a range of benches, loungers and litter bins.

The clean, simple lines of the designs subtly enhance the landscape vision and improve user experience. Innovative products such as loungers invite visitors to sit and enjoy a moment of relaxation in nature.

For the litter bins, we worked with the park maintenance department to optimize our designs. This makes waste disposal and general upkeep easier. We also provided a location plan for all the furniture, so it would be installed in the right areas. This helps visitors to enjoy the park fully.

The products were designed to be extremely durable and easy to maintain. In robust materials such as powder coated steel, all are still in optimum condition over a decade later.
