  • With almost 70% of the world’s population living in cities by 2030, the thoughtful design and planning of our public realms will be vital as rapid urbanisation takes hold. Modern living and working scenarios pose a number of challenges in the face of rapid urbanisation. These include, poor social connection, loneliness, low employee engagement, impaired physical and mental wellbeing, inhibited creativity as well as negative community or workplace sentiments. Forming a family of flexible outdoor elements, Scape supports moments of the everyday; socialising, relaxing, working, collaborating, meeting, lounging, eating, waiting, commuting – or simply disconnecting from technology and coalescing with nature.

  • Reminiscent of flowing rock formations, Scape elicits a soft, organic design language – nurturing a more humanised connection with our vital public spaces and common areas. Scape’s earthy and wholesome curves offer an inviting sense of warmth, communal sensibility, and ‘friendliness’. Gravitating people toward it – Scape subsequently draws activation to the spaces it inhabits. Offering adaptability as to how it’s used, where it’s used and its aesthetic, Scape breathes new life into the way we interact with public spaces and common areas. En masse, the system takes on distinct needs-supporting ecosystems. Various scenarios may be achieved by customising the configurations.

  • Scape responds to the modern challenges of rapid urbanisation with a fluid system designed to foster our relationship with the natural environment, encourage social interaction, provide a place for inspired working, support our need to seek respite and enhance the wellbeing of our communities and workplaces. Forming a family of flexible and playful outdoor elements, Scape supports moments of the everyday.

  • Various scenarios and outcomes may be achieved by customising the configuration of the modules, these scenarios may then be fine-tuned with the addition of componentry such as tables, backrests, canopies, planters and side tables. Scape’s canopy and side table feature smooth, 360° swivel functionality, allowing users to adjust them to their preference. Scape may provide a nurturing and rejuvenating environment for people to disconnect and de-stress or create a bustling social hub in a workplace café.
