What does the term “street furniture” bring to mind? If rows of rigidly functional — or sometimes outright hostile — benches and chairs come to mind, it’s because cities across North America are full of them. For Maglin Site Furniture, however, infusing a sense of joy and comfort into the public realm is a vital part of the modus operandi. Case in point: The 720 Series of chairs and chaise lounges.
Ergonomically constructed to combine comfort with sophisticated modern design, the collection is also elevated by a subtle playfulness that introduces new energy to outdoor spaces. From public plazas and busy street-facing patios to parks and tranquil green spaces, the elegant yet durable designs offer an enticing invitation to linger.
Fabricated with a sleek frame of laser cut and formed steel, both the chair and chaise lounge are available in a choice of natural Ipe wood or powdercoated steel seats. While the understated wood finishes foster a pleasantly soothing ambiance, the rich array of powdercoat colourways make for a bold placemaking gesture.
In downtown Charlotte, North Carolina, the Bank of America plaza is animated by a colourful selection of Maglin Site furnishings, including an array of yellow, blue and green 720 Series chaise lounges that frame the compact urban park. It makes for an energetic, welcoming space at the heart of a busy commercial environment.
In Whistler, British Columbia, meanwhile, the bright yellow chairs and chaise lounges accent a very different milieu, fostering moments of respite along the ribbon of public spaces that make up the city’s Cultural Connector. What’s more, the 720 Chair and 720 Chaise Lounge’s sleek design language is complemented by a multi-layered finish to withstand the elements of the Canadian Rocky Mountains.
All steel components are protected with E-Coat Rust Proofing, while the Maglin Powdercoat System provides a durable finish on all metal surfaces and the hard-wearing Ipe wood slats are finished with penetrating sealers. From the Carolinas to the Rockies, it all makes for a vibrant, welcoming and weather-ready public realm.
