Central Park Conservancy Recycling System from Landscape Forms

  Subscribe to FREE newsletter  May 21, 2015

The Central Park Conservancy Recycling System is an arresting combination of high form and humble function. Designed by the leading branding and design firm Landor for the non-profit Central Park Conservancy, it was conceived as a custom solution to advance environmental stewardship at the world’s most famous urban park. The three-unit system first developed and produced by Landscape Forms Studio 431 has proven itself on the job, fulfilling its mission and earning rave reviews. And now Landscape Forms has made the standout Central Park Conservancy Recycling System a standard product.

The award-winning design, inspired by the classic 1930s Central Park bench, cleverly turns the hooped arms and seat slats of the original on end, re-envisioning them for a new purpose. The diagonal tilt of the slats, the spiral flow of the lid, and the placement of typography all draw the eye up to the receptacle’s aperture, providing visual prompts for appropriate use. Units are identical in size and shape, different in color and the size of top openings; for example, gray for cans and bottles; “Conservancy” green for paper; and tan for waste. The cast aluminum elements have a hinged top and hold a polyethylene liner that can be used with or without a plastic bag, making them easy to service.

The Central Park Conservancy Recycling System’s vibrant and original design has earned it multiple accolades, including GOOD DESIGN, SEGD, the Spark Design Silver Award and a prestigious Cannes Gold Lion, a Cannes Festival of Creativity Award in the new “Social Good” product category.

Metal is finished with Landscape Forms’ proprietary Pangard II® polyester powercoat, a hard yet flexible finish that resists rusting, chipping, peeling and fading. Call for standard color chart. A wide array of optional colors may be specified for an upcharge.
