The importance of open/public spaces
Our parks & open/public spaces provide intrinsic environmental, aesthetic and recreational benefits to our communities.
The current climate
Considering the COVID-19 pandemic, people have responded to modern challenges by returning to simpler, more traditional activities.
Having more park furniture means:
- It encourages people to enjoy the outdoors
- It supports people’s social wellbeing
- It can help with social distancing rules when products are strategically placed, giving people the opportunity to enjoy outdoor spaces safely.

We’ve designed both the Bench and Sofa to have a sitting height of 445mm (to be exact), making it easily accessible and allowing the feet to be flat on the floor for comfort.
The arm rests available on both the Sofa and Bench have a height of 705mm from the ground, meaning there is a reachable surface with which to steady oneself prior to sitting.
