Entry Description

MultipliCITY is an international collection of outdoor public furniture elements that gives new meaning to the term “global design.” Created and developed in partnership with celebrated design innovators Yves Behar and fuseproject, MultipliCITY pioneers the integration of mass production and custom materials and configurations for a global market. The flexible, dynamic system addresses multiple scales, applications and creative expressions and includes six elements: a backed and backless bench, table, bike rack, LED pathlight and litter. Structural parts are manufactured by Landscape Forms, seating and table surfaces are produced from locally sourced hardwoods in markets outside North America, and flat shipping and local assembly to international locations supports carbon- reducing sustainability. MultipliCITY is a citizen of the world, equally at home in Buenos Aires, Barcelona and Boston. The MultipliCITY bench with back is a central element of the international site furniture collection that gives new meaning to the term “global design.” The backed bench is part of a dynamic and flexible system distinguished by sculptural forms and subtle intricacy in the connections between parts. The cast aluminum bench with wood seat is substantial in scale, solid and grounded, imparting a sense of ease and stability. Straight and mitered benches allow countless configurations, including complex geometries. Benches with left and right seat and back offsets are offered as standard for added visual and functional appeal. Crisp flat arms and a tablet for holding a laptop or lunch are optional. The backless bench is wider than the backed version, allowing people to sit back-to-back as well as forward to increase social activity in a space. The backless bench is a perfect companion to the MultipliCITY table under which it efficiently slides.
