A Modular Approach To The Urban Environment.
This "swatch watch" of street furniture experiments with separating the traditional bollard into two halves and creating a catalogue of different possibilities. The Flexi-Bollard system allows every simple bollard to become portable, promoting the urban landscape to be reconfigured with new colours or different function as the seasons and needs of the city or community change.
The Urban Aesthetic.
Throughout history the bollard has been a medium of aesthetic expression for generations of monarchs, governments and public organisations. In a quite way bollards, bike locks and litter management along with way-finding items set the tone and mood of a city and urban space. Through simple forms and human detailing the collection aims toward becoming a positive part of the modern urban landscape. Recycled plastic is a lightweight and durable material which provides colour bursts alongside the traditional look and feel of cast aluminium.
The Fixed-Base is ideal for traffic control applications, pedestrian amenities, bike locking and dog minding opportunities. The functional top half is fastened to the base, which is either set in concrete whilst being poured or fastened afterwards.
The Porta-Base encompasses the same range of functionality as the fixed range but provide further flexibility. The opportunity to entirely create and reconfigure specific functionality or amenity within a short time frame is made possible through the use of the portable base. There is no need for permanent fixtures or skilled labor, which opens the door to implement the range more readily and appropriately within retail and educational environments.
