Landscape Forms Introduces Reeder Wayfinding Elements

Landscape Forms is pleased to introduce the Reeder Illuminated Bike Rack and Reeder Illuminated Sign, two noteworthy products and the first entries in a new Landscape Forms product category called Wayfinding. Wayfinding elements are designed to guide, direct and signal people through space while providing product-specific functions, from graphic identity and directions, to delineating pathways and social spaces, to creating places to park a bike. The embedded illumination in the new Reeder Wayfinding products is a feature that will be carried forward in future additions to the category. “We have identified an interest among architects and designers in site elements that are not necessarily lighting products but include lighting along with their primary functions,” explains Landscape Forms President, Richard Heriford. “The illuminated bike rack and sign by Rick Reeder are utilitarian products and beautiful sculptural forms in which embedded light creates a visual experience.”
The Reeder Illuminated Bike Rack and Reeder Illuminated Sign are minimal and architectural in form, refined and sophisticated in presence. The embedded LED lights respond to the growing appreciation of lighting integrated with furniture and buildings that is subtle and diffused. Kirt Martin, VP of Design and Marketing, Landscape Forms says, “We are excited about the new Wayfinding category as an extension of our product offering. It is something we plan to build on because we see the value of bringing subtle illumination to settings in ways that are less conventional than what is currently available. The Reeder Illuminated Bike Rack and Sign are beautiful products that are complimentary to the landscape and in the tradition of contemporary design for which Landscape Forms is known.”
The Reeder Illuminated Bike Rack with an optional LED down light mounted under the top serves multiple functions: as a bike rack pure and simple; as both bike rack and wayfinder; and as sculptural wayfinding in its own right. The Reeder Illuminated Sign is angular in shape and slim in profile, with LED up lighting embedded in the base. The glass panel set into the base can be custom etched with messaging provided by the user. Cast and extruded aluminum elements are Pangard ll ® powdercoat finished with all standard color palette options.
