Following the successful 2004 launch of the Lakeside park bench collection, Landscape Forms asked the architect to expand the outdoor collection to include dining tables and chairs that would appeal to resorts and clubs as well as residences.
A natural evolution of the new Windmark line was to incorporate in a scaled-down version for the chair and table frames the same folded steel strapping configuration used for the benches. The original grass and ginko patterns were reconfigured into perforated metal seat and back pans.
The chairs needed to be at once heavy enough to not blow away yet light enough to be liftable. This condition dictated that the frame become an aluminum casting but the seat and back remain steel so as to permit the incising of patterns. Bolting the seat and back panels to the frame with stainless steel hardware permits either to be specified in differing or similar powder coated colors.
Round and square table versions of the strap frame are available with tops of frosted glass or steel. The rectangular table is available in a metal three ‘planked’ version. All tops taper in on their outer edges to effect a lightness and delicacy of detail.
Of sturdy composition on the one hand but of dignified countenance on the other, the artful Windmark Collection joins a long line of specialized furnishings designed to grace the landscape.
