Landscape Forms introduces Village Green

  Subscribe to FREE newsletter  Jul 31, 2008

Kalamazoo, MI – Landscape Forms, a designer, manufacturer and marketer of award-winning commercial outdoor furniture and accessories, introduces Village Green. The latest addition to the Landmark Collection of seating and accessories designed by distinguished design professionals is also inspired by familiar themes in architecture, nature and historic design. The Village Green bench is a sophisticated update on a simple American classis.

Award-winning product designer John Rizzi re-imagined the schoolyard bench of his boyhood as an impeccably detailed seating solution for today’s small urban spaces. This steel slat bench is fluid in contour and smooth around the edges. Its posture angle, depth of seat and generous front radius provide support for back and legs and a very comfortable seating experience. Seat and back slats are connected to the frame with sealed welds that create a refined visual and tactile detail.

The 6’ long bench is scaled for intimate public settings. It is offered with end arms, end and center arms, and armless. The bench frame and slats are made of bar steel in two weights, with steel rods as back supports. Construction is carefully balanced so Village Green is as light as it can be to make sustainable use of materials and heavy enough to support urban public use. The bench has a recycled material content of 91% and is 100% recyclable.

Village Green is finished with Landscape Forms’ proprietary Pangard IIĀ® polyester powdercoat process; a durable finish that is U.V., chip and flake resistant. The finish contains no heavy metal, is HAPS-free and has extremely low VOCs. A selection of standard, optional and custom colors are available.

Landscape Forms is based in Kalamazoo, MI and the 40 year old company’s product list includes exterior seating systems, benches, tables and chairs, umbrellas, wheelchair-accessible picnic tables, planters, litter receptacles and ash urns. Clients include such well-recognized companies as Boeing, Cisco Systems, Hewlett Packard, Harvard University, Disney, Chrysler, Mayo Clinic, Chicago’s Lincoln Park Zoo, Sprint, American Airlines, LaGuardia Airport, Microsoft, Nike, United States Tennis Association and many others.
