Bespoke street furniture
The Australian street furniture and playscape company UAP collaborated with Jurgen Mayer H. and Times Square Arts to fabricate and install a series of three X-shaped lounges designed specifically for the bustling Broadway Plaza in New York. The fuchsia-coloured Xs’ incorporate a soft rubber turf within the seats and accommodate up to four people each, giving pedestrians the opportunity to relax, look around and enjoy a view of the skyline from a new perspective.
As the first mobile bespoke street furniture elements for the plaza, the lounges draw inspiration from the ‘Bowtie X-shaped’ intersection of Broadway and 7th Avenue. The design also makes a cheeky reference to the plaza’s X-rated past.
