In 2015, we joined forces with Architecture 00. Together, we enjoy collaborating in a shared environment where strategic, urban and social designers, architects, programmers and economists practice design beyond its traditional borders. 00 work with individuals, governments, corporations and communities to solve problems and anticipate change, and to design successful platforms and places. As a studio it aims to reach beyond the design of objects themselves to the social, economic and environmental systems behind them.
We have designed a family of street furniture for the widest High Street in the UK, Stockton-on-Tees, which is currently being fabricated from cast aluminium and iroko.
The furniture references Stockton's predilection for festivities: ‘The Stockton people may have been poor but they never let an opportunity pass which gave them the excuse for a celebration or a procession.’
