Street Furniture - Lessons from Ibiza


I saw some really nice public chairs in Ibiza, right in front of a very modern hospital. The chairs look like they were inspired by the Zig Zag chair from Gerrit Thomas Rietveld.

It would be neat to have public chairs like that downtown Ottawa, maybe in bright red on Sussex street. Also Panton chairs (I love these chairs) made out of concrete could also be interesting in a public area.

Even better, we could showcase the work of our best Canadian furniture designers like the 8.0 chair by Omer Arbel from Vancouver. A series of 8.0 chairs would look awesome in a public area in Ottawa. Maybe along the Rideau canal? I like how these chairs look so thin.
