Metro40 by BMW Designworks

bmw-metro40-bench.jpg

BMW Group Design­work­sUSA, in col­lab­o­ra­tion with Land­scape Forms, has designed Metro40, a stun­ning col­lec­tion of site fur­ni­ture for street-scapes and tran­sit envi­ron­ments. The col­lec­tion includes a shel­ter, trash recep­ta­cle, bench, bike rack, bol­lard, lights and poster dis­play. The entire col­lec­tion is bril­liantly designed, but the piece that stands out for me is the bench.

The design is stream­lined and sim­ple and makes use of some fine mate­ri­als. I per­son­ally love the sweep­ing curves and how the legs are one con­tin­ues piece that form a part of the back and seat. I’m sure my butt would appre­ci­ate sit­ting on one of these.

    Lovely piece of ele­gant design. Love how the metal­lic sup­port struc­ture looks like an elas­tic band. Which is a beau­ti­ful con­tra­dic­tion which adds to its tac­til­ity. And the wood is curved off too so the eye flows over the con­tours. This is more than a ubiq­ui­tous bench. It is a piece of sculpture.

  • Great design!

  • beau­ti­ful solution.
