This project was carried out for the City of Perth to convert Museum Street into a pedestrian friendly area. Advanteering Civil Engineers was the contractor assigned for the job, which included the demolition of the existing hard works (asphalt, concrete kerbing, brick paving and drainage infrastructure), the construction and installation of new hard works, transplanting of trees, and also the installation of internally lit, hard wired glowing PLAY IN ART® street furniture.
Contacted both by the City of Perth and Advanteering, we were asked to design street furniture with a “night glow” effect, at PLAY IN ART® style: conceptual, sculptural and functional.
We designed 5 different Urban Sculptures in Rotomolded PEHD with high UV protection with internal Waterproof LED system, which are also fun and attractive benches for kids, teenagers and adults.
For the supply of the pieces we had to design, first, the moulds for the rotomoulding process, and then, to produce prototypes of all the pieces, performing the lighting tests. Fifteen pieces were later produced, and installed in Museum Street under Play Planet´s supervision.
