PRODUCT DETAILS

Judging from its title, Urban Furniture may lead you to the idea of modern, elegant and exquisite furniture in grand shopping malls. However, it’s actually all about city public facilities, such as fountains, playground apparatus, signage systems, bike racks, etc. Urban furniture is regarded as the carrier of new functions and new directions for our societies, hence plays a key part in witnessing the city’s transformation. As demographers announce that by 2026 84% of the population of industrialized countries will dwell large cities, the significance of urban furniture indeed concerns us more and more.

While grouping together more than 500 public elements and systems, this book is never intended to be seen as informative. What we put our best effort in is to showcase the most recent and innovative aspects of city life, no matter they are in an aesthetic way, or formal, functional, even playful one. The city has its inherent task to share, thus raising the stakes in our willingness to live together. Urban furniture, working as the vital bridge of sharing, has to be historic, diverse and successful. And you will understand all these substances in our book.
