Marshalls is pleased to announce the latest edition to its Street Furniture portfolio.
The Natural Elements range is a modular, coordinated range, inspired by biophilic design and elements from the natural environment.
The range aims to introduce natural forms, patterns and materials into urban spaces, integrating planting areas within a modular seating system. Natural Elements incorporates this ethos into the range by having modular units which can be configured to suit any space, linking a combination of seats, cycle stands and planters.
Often projects require bespoke solutions in order to navigate more complex spaces, however with the addition of two 45° and 60° curved modules, snaking configurations can easily be created to make the most of the available space.
The term biophilic design seeks to bring alive a love of nature, and suggests all humans have an intrinsic connection with nature. The form and design style of the Natural Elements range resembles patterns found in the natural environment, and the FSC certified timber is responsibly sourced from well managed forests.
A signature cell-pattern design has been laser cut into modules throughout the range, and finished with either the unique two-tone Corten Fossil, or the textured Pebble Shore, which both give the appearance of an ageing material which can be sympathetically blended with the surrounding area.
The focal point of the range is the distinctive seating styling, which creates a gentle wave effect when multiple convex and concave modules are connected; despite the differences in height, all points on the seating areas are still in-keeping with DDA guidelines.
The Natural Elements range is made from FSC certified redwood timber, which has a subtle texture and accentuated grain formation which contributes to the inviting feel of the range. Available in two tones – Rustic Brown and Grey Mist.
Low level lighting is also available throughout integrated LED lighting which creates a uniting, soft ambient glow.
