Landscape architects celebrate Linea at The Mint

Landscape architects gathered at The Mint in Sydney’s CBD from sunset to night-time, to examine 26 new Linea products from the sleek and minimalist collection accompanied by live jazz and Negronis.

The event was attended by Street Furniture Australia co-founder and director Bill Morrison and his wife Libby Morrison. We thank them for their generous support of our first in-person event, the perfect antidote to years of lockdown.

“The Linea range is special to us largely because it was co-designed with landscape architects. We deeply thank Tim Field, Hamish Dounan, Sam Westlake and Dr Kate Bishop who gave their time to the design process,” said Head of Marketing and Innovation, June Lee Boxsell.

Head of Product Design Francis McArdle said the contribution of landscape architects was central in developing the sleek and minimalist range.

“We listened closely to their wishlists for this contemporary style of public space furniture – including the product categories they would most like to see and specify, aesthetics and highly practical considerations,” said Francis.

“The result is a refined minimal form language that belies incredible strength and durability achieved through stainless steel frames. The products also have environmental benefits in that they are 100% recyclable when specified with aluminium battens,” he said.

Tim Field, Senior Associate – Landscape Architect with Place Design Group and a consultant for the Linea design said the event was an excellent opportunity to see the fully-realised collection all together, in one place.

“In working with Street Furniture Australia on the Linea range, we had some great meetings with Francis and June exploring how to continue the Linea language across benches, seats and bike racks,” Tim said.

“I encourage landscape architects to speak with Street Furniture Australia about your ideas, because they can turn them into reality. It’s great to now see the full collection of Linea products.”

Joining the established Linea family in 2022 are five new products: the Linea Platform, Lookout Table, Bollard, Bicycle Stand and Sun Lounge.

Winter Jazz with Linea guests were invited on the night to post a photo on Instagram of their favourite Linea product, with a chance to win one of three tickets to the 2022 International Festival of Landscape Architecture: COUNTRY to be held in Brisbane, Queensland in October.
