31 Jan Innovative Urban Designs at Landscape Ontario Congress
Visitors to the Landscape Ontario Congress Trade Show and Conference in January were impressed and inspired by the innovative line of Bellitalia urban furniture on display by Central Precast. As the exclusive Canadian distributor of the Italian manufacturer’s outdoor furniture, Central Precast wanted to demonstrate the extensive possibilities of elegant yet practical designs for city public spaces, sidewalks and parks, as well as urban architecture and private developments.
Visitors to the booth commented on the unusual shapes and finishes of the products on display, as well as the modern, sleek look and feel. The refined designs depart from the traditional, bulky look of concrete urban furniture. These iconic designs enable landscape contractors, architects, city planners, and developers to achieve a high-end, sophisticated style with additions like bicycle racks, benches and tree grates.
Visitors were equally impressed that the manufacturer has not sacrificed functionality in the name of form. With its natural smooth finish, visitors thought the Alba bench was manufactured from fiberglass or plastic, but on attempting to lift it, they discovered it is made from a high-performance material called Ultratense ConcreteⓇ. This ensures durability, strength and weight of traditional concrete, while allowing a sleeker design. Many of Bellitalia’s products are multi-functional, this means that, despite the elegant finish, they are manufactured of heavy concrete, meaning that items like bollards, planters and litter bins can act as effective security deterrents in high-profile public areas.
Bellitalia’s use of innovative concrete materials also means planners, developers and architects can now opt for a larger variety of finishes on their urban furniture. Products can be painted in various colours, elevating park areas and public spaces, and allowing for branding and customization. Finishes exist in polished, sand-blasted, marble aggregate and regular, adding sophistication to city scapes.
