Street Furniture Australia joins Landscape Foundation of Australia as a Founding Partner

Street Furniture Australia is proud to announce a new partnership with the Landscape Foundation of Australia, as their first Founding Partner.

The Foundation is a newly formed not-for-profit dedicated to championing the protection, restoration, enhancement and sustainable management of natural environments in Australian cities and towns.

With nearly 90% of Australians now living in cities and townships, the Foundation is committed to halting the decline of natural environments and restoring a sustainable relationship between people and nature, to ensure their mutual health and survival.

The visionaries behind the Foundation – founding directors Linda Corkery, Noel Corkery, Catherin Bull AM and Chris Champion – share the belief that environmental degradation can be reversed through high quality planning, design and management practices.

Through grant-making and facilitation, the Foundation will fund research to inform decision-makers, award scholarships and fellowships to build capacity, and support projects undertaken by community groups.

Street Furniture Australia’s Head of Marketing and Innovation, June Lee Boxsell, said, “We are thrilled to collaborate with the Landscape Foundation of Australia, which we see as an opportunity to further our support of healthy and enjoyable public spaces for many generations to come.”

Landscape Foundation of Australia Founder and Director Linda Corkery said, “There’s much work to be done around the issues of urban sustainability and protecting and enhancing natural environments. Street Furniture Australia shares our values around these issues and both organisations recognise that finding solutions must engage bright minds and diverse perspectives.

“We thank Street Furniture Australia for their support, and are excited about the collaborations that can flow from this relationship.”

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 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 …

New design book explores the role of street furniture in ‘… creating a sense of place’

Within architectural and urban landscapes, street furniture plays an important role in inviting communities to enjoy the public realm. Furniture selection can also contribute to establishing the character and identity of the locale. In a new book, ‘…creating a sense of place’ published by Piper Press, two architects, Darrel Conybeare and Bill Morrison, detail their lifelong mission to design and manufacture street furniture that brings a sense of belonging. The duo created the archetypal Australian park bench in 1978 to furnish an urban design project: City Walk Public Domain in Canberra’s Civic, ACT. They explored universal design principles and durable materials to produce a seat to stand the test of time, with a design language attuned to the public space. The much-loved Classic Plaza Seat is still popular in the …
