With a vision to create a timeless, long lasting series of outdoor furniture for urban and closeto- nature environments, Folk was created – a wide-ranging and flexible series of outdoor furniture consisting of park benches in various designs, litter bins and bicycle parking racks. In Nordic cities and towns, such amenities are found everywhere, often becoming a natural part of the
park or sidewalk. The collaboration between Vestre and Front began with a discussion about the importance and benefits of public spaces, and above all the function of seating in urban environments. The park bench is a gathering spot for people who live in the city. It is where they get together to drink coffee in the sun, as well as a place to stop and rest when carrying heavy bags, or while on a long walk or run. The Folk series was created taking all this into consideration.
The litter bin comes in lacquered aluminum for anchoring with flange (A) and casting in the ground (C).
