The opening of the completely revamped Koning Leopold III square in Blankenberge was a wonderful festive occasion. It marked one of the final stages of the extensive renovation of a number of streets and public spaces across the city. Streetlife supplied 31 Love Tubs to brighten up the square, especially during the winter months. In summer, these striking tree planters will make way for special events.
The City of Blankenberge requested engineering firm Plantec and Streetlife to collaborate on the development of a new visual identity for the makeover of several locations in the city. Since Blankenberge is a seaside town, the street furniture had to be resistant to the salty air. In consultation with the city council and Plantec, Streetlife provided stainless steel benches and tree planters from its ‘Love’ series.
The Streetlife Love series comprises benches and tree planters with a monolithic, conical shape. The benches have a seat made of hardwood Solid slats of 7x7 cm. The Love series was extended with a mono seat, the Love Cube, especially for Blankenberge. This smaller version of the Love Bench is a fine addition to the range. At the request of the city authority, the larger Love Benches were fitted with a backrest.
