The Marine Series is Brisbane, Australia-based designer Alexander Lotersztain’s latest venture into the field of street and parkland furniture.
The designs take inspiration from the aesthetics and craftsmanship of luxury yachts, combining sleek lines and cutting edge materials to form comfortable seating arrangements and refuse bins that offer the versatility of modular design.
The range of benches have been designed to cantilever like the bow of a sailing boat, complimenting the vessels moored in Sanctuary Cove’s adjacent Marina in the Gold Coast, Australia.
The Collection is manufactured by Street and Garden Furniture Company in Brisbane. http://streetandgarden.com/
The benches are made from mild-steel that has been hot-dip galvanized and powder-coated in Lemon Yellow. The back and armrests are thermoformed DuPont Corian finished in Snow White, selected for its UV stability and corrosion resistance. 316-grade stainless steel has been used for the garbage and recycling bins as well as the seat fittings in order to ensure resistance to stains and corrosion.
The goal was not only to compliment the local surroundings, but to also enhance the visual identity of the marina and town centre developments through the design of a series of street furniture which responds directly to the context and lifestyle within a sea side community.
