  • Winners of the 2nd “Forme Publique” bi-annual street furniture design competition, Julie Brand and Francis Boissenin have treated the public area by imagining ladders/seats that brighten up the urban landscape. On Paris’ Esplanade de La Défense, the young designers have erected three small ladders clad with front/back-printed Batyline ISO fabric to provide single seats, while other larger ladders offer standing seats.

    A concept imagined as a leisure invitation
    “For this second event, the bi-annual competition’s theme was “the plug-in, a principle involving extension of modules or furniture at their installation location.”, explain the designers.
    “How does one develop the base of the high-rise buildings to allow this area to create a threshold between private domain (high-rise employees who occupy these areas close to their offices) and the public (passers-by, inhabitants, tourists who also have access to this area)? We wanted to create street furniture that combined the specific needs of both passers-by and employees so that this public space could be shared by all its users. We felt that leisure was the most important point to be expanded because few developments allow for taking a fully relaxed break without moving away from one’s workplace. In the landscape, the “Street Ladder Seats” operate as a colourful signal, a leisure invitation.”

    Colourful, unusual urban objects
    The two designers’ project is based on seats and shelves supported by metal ladder-shaped frames, which bear on both the ground and the Place Iris courtyard facade. These structures enable installation of a Batyline ISO fabric forming seats. Batyline products were selected for not only their lightness and seating comfort, but also their exceptional resistance to climatic conditions and their durability. A humorous wink at this business area…… the large-size printed motifs recall those of a man’s tie magnified to landscape scale.

    Batyline ISO exhibits its outstanding properties
    • Faultless resistance to external conditions: unmatched resistance to UV radiation, damp, mould, extreme temperatures and frost
    • No deformation with usage: excellent material stability under tension (no bagging)
    • Very lightweight and transparent appearance
    • 100% recyclable through the Texyloop® process
