by Brianna Crandall — June 22, 2020 — Landscape Forms, a US-based designer and manufacturer of high-design site furniture, structures, and advanced LED lig hting used around the world, recently introduced Link, an innovative and highly flexible outdoor seating system.
Link enables specifiers to achieve the scalability and creative freedom of custom site furnishings with added value and simplicity. The system’s modular design accommodates the design and nuances of virtually any site, both physically and aesthetically, says the company.
Link is the latest collaboration between Landscape Forms and sorelstudio, an award-winning furniture design consultancy headed by designer Jess Sorel.
In designing Link, we set out to achieve a universal, “meant-to-be” quality. Well-designed custom furnishings integrate so fluidly and seamlessly into their landscapes — giving the feeling that they simply could not be designed any other way. With Link, we achieve this same feeling, enabling the ideal solution for any given space through flexibility, modularity and adaptability.
Link’s modern aesthetic and virtually limitless configurations allow it to accommodate a diverse range of landscapes and applications.
Landscape Forms Chief Creative Officer Kirt Martin stated:
Link is all about options, both for the designer and the end user. Its design language is so simple and uncomplicated, but the system actually features sophisticated construction and engineering to create a product that offers our customers complete freedom and adaptability, while maintaining the quality, fit and finish they expect from Landscape Forms.
Key options for Link include the inline or piano key orientation of the slats on the seats and backs, which allow for straight, mitered, arced, or even serpentine arrangements. Different radii for the bench structures enable varying degrees of curvature.
Link can also be configured with or without backs and arms; affixed with metal supports or a straight concrete block; and can be mounted seamlessly on top of, or directly to, walls of any kind.
