Designed in collaboration with award-winning architect Alex Lifschutz, the Coda street furniture range by manufacturers Woodhouse offers long-term durability with a refined palette of materials and finishes. The Coda range features a bench, seat, stool, bollard, bin and bike stand which is launched together with a complementary wayfinding signage system. Every item is visually co-ordinated to facilitate a harmonised street scene. The recurring conic shape and tapered profile express a contemporary design which complements a range of architectural styles.
The slim, low-profile of the seating conveys a sense of lightness and refinement that the robustness of the concrete employed as the fundamental structural ingredient. The contrast with the sustainably sourced Iroko hardwood creates a two-tone effect and provides great scope for colour customization. The diagonal detail created where the two materials meet is repeated through the range and gives Coda a distinctive visual identity. [Photos and information provided via e-mail by Woodhouse]
