Project Information:

Bright, bold and curvaceous by day and illuminated by night, the unique GRP seating, created by Design & Display Structures, will be noticed 24/7 at the 42.5 acre Paradise Street Regeneration project - playing a part in the city's transition into the Capital of Culture.

Sitting within a designer third floor courtyard in the vast project, the brightly coloured GRP seats, with inbuilt lighting, will catch the eyes of thousands of visitors every day and night.

The extensive Paradise Street retail-led mixed-use development is designed to create a pedestrianised boulevard shopping area. Featuring challenging architecture and many flagship stores, it is one of the UK's most dramatic regeneration projects, highlighting the city's renaissance.

Part of this project includes the large, third floor courtyard garden. Designed by BCA Landscape, it features timber decking and creative features, including bold doughnut-shaped seating from GRP expert, Design & Display Structures.

The attractive modular seats follow a smooth, circular structure forming a hole in the centre, manufactured in a range of circumferences for variation.

Working closely with the architect, Design & Display Structures was able to take the design vision and turn it into a visual reality using advanced 3D modelling technology.

Ergonomics were a critical aspect of the seats, as it was important they promoted best posture and were comfortable for all users. Using Design & Displays Structures' prototype process, it was possible to establish the ideal curvature.

Adding an extra challenge was the integration of LEDS. Taking from its extensive experience, the company was capable of designing a configuration that would allow the inclusion of transformer powered LEDS to flood light the paving below.

The GRP seat cladding was then installed upon its stainless steel support over clad with spun aluminium effect cones. With the highly polished surface of the brightly coloured GRP sitting beside the cool, smooth aluminium, a modern aesthetic was created.

With the seating now in place, visitors will have an innovative and comfortable area to sit and take in the designer courtyard, whilst sitting within one of the UK's most spectacular developments.
