The challenges and objectives of public space development
Designing outdoor furniture for communities means understanding all the uses to which it is put. The city as a place to live requires functional, comfortable equipment, but also products that convey the community’s image and harmonize with existing buildings and facilities.
While community furniture used to be limited to benches, picnic tables and bus shelters, it has evolved along with urban lifestyles and travel patterns. Today, a large part of the development work is aimed at facilitating new forms of mobility. Cycle shelters and secure boxes account for a large proportion of the furniture designed and installed by Polymobyl.
Another change in lifestyle, linked to climate change and ecological awareness, is also having an impact on the design of public spaces. As a result, we are increasingly offering planted pergolas and shade areas.
