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.
