The environment is characterised by striking but pleasant dualities. For instance, the rustic garden and the rural ambience contrast with the modern, luxurious architecture. This contrast is also reflected in the Streetlife street furniture. Products from the Rough&Ready and Solid Series were chosen to highlight the surrounding dualism. The robust character of the Rough&Ready beams (7x15 cm) is juxtaposed with the contemporary, refined appearance of the Solid slats (7x7 cm). Due to the coherence between the different product series in the Streetlife collection, a uniform appearance nevertheless emerges.
The organic shapes of the path are mirrored by the meandering Rough&Ready Curve Benches. The flexible Streetlife system allowed the landscape architects to determine the radius and length of the benches and the vertical slats of the Rough&Ready Royal Backrests follow the curves seamlessly.
The three Solid Serif Chaise Longues with their wave-shaped surfaces are in complete harmony with the natural character of the garden, while the slender slat format underlines the elegance of modern architecture. The distance between the individual slats is kept small (8 mm), resulting in an almost closed seat. Thanks to this homogeneous surface and the curved shape, the Solid Serif Chaise Longues are extremely comfortable and act as an open invitation to relax and sunbathe.
The Solid Skirt Benches also have a modern look. One circular and two elongated benches were selected. The vertical slats of the ‘Skirt’ connect to the horizontal slats of the seat. Streetlife always avoids conventional wood joints and has developed a distinct, elegant corner solution. A slender steel plate simultaneously joins the two slats while emphasising the junction.
Two geometric Podium Isles round off the project. These were made to measure at the request of the landscape architects. The trapezoidal and polygonal contours are precisely adapted to the surroundings and thus blend perfectly into the garden. Their elegance is reminiscent of the architecture. Unique and coherent, Streetlife’s collection not only serves to highlight Bürgenstock’s compelling contrasts but helps to create a harmonious and highly attractive environment.
