CIVENEX 2014

Exhibiting in a tranquil park environment at the infrastructure expo CIVENEX in Sydney

At an outdoor site at CIVENEX, Street Furniture Australia decided to recreate how our furniture appears in its natural habitat – a park. Andreasens Green, a leading Australian nursery, partnered with us for the event and provided a stylish array of trees and plants.

Partnering with Andreasens Green

Street Furniture Australia collaborated with Context Landscape Design to create the site. The brief was put forward as a competition among their staff and the result was an amalgamation of the best ideas from each entry. A bottle of Moet was awarded to the very talented designers Claire Broun, Ross Mills and Bhavna Arumugam.

The final design created a harmonious and cosy setting for visitors to lounge on, and the potted trees provided shade from the blazing sun. The Street Furniture Australia stand offered a surprising and pleasant change to the surrounding stands at the expo.

Why choose the original Linea over reproductions?

Successful products are often followed by copycats. Over the past year we have become aware of an increase in reproductions of the Linea range attempting to create a similar aesthetic at a lower price. This can compromise the overall durability and environmental credentials of projects being delivered, affect ongoing maintenance requirements, and in some instances pose a risk of injury to the public. The design of Linea is deceptively simple while delivering exceptional attention to detail. Details matter not only for beauty, but also for providing durability, and safety, that will last decades. Linea strictly uses the highest quality and sustainable materials, has passed rigorous strength tests, and is designed for longevity, with easily replaceable parts. The product range is the result of hundreds of hours of research and development …

Earthy Pastels: now with boosted UV resistance

You can now specify Street Furniture Australia’s popular Earthy Pastels colour range with the assurance of brilliant colour for years to come. That’s because the UV resistance currently applied to the Durabright Range has been added to Earthy Pastels as standard. The Earthy Pastels range was introduced in July 2022 to meet popular demand for contemporary muted hues. As Earthy Pastels were increasingly specified across a wide range of landscape design projects, it was important to ensure the full range of colours would retain their brilliance in the harsh Australian climate. The Earthy Pastels range includes eight colours inspired by the Australian landscape. Muted shades in Mustard, Dusty Pink and Pale Eucalypt green are inspired by the desert. The blue ocean and sky are represented by the hues Horizon Blue …

Camerer hatches winning seat

Landscape architect Nicholas Camerer, from Fremantle’s Ecoscape in Western Australia, is the winner of the first Intergrain Urban Timber Project. Graduates and students pitched their designs for a functional piece of urban furniture for a community garden in Werribee Park, Victoria; a supportive cross-cultural hub for locals and Karen refugees. The challenge: to find imaginative ways to use timber in a seat that invites the community to come together. Camerer’s winning design, ‘Hatch,’ features a curved form and strong timber cross beams, which can serve as a leaning rack for tools and garden stakes when not being used as a seat. Flashes of red, white and blue on inner panels represent the colours of both Karen and Australian flags. The bench is designed for easy maintenance and cleaning, and complements an existing …
