Street Furniture Your City Wishes it Had

Street furniture already catches the eye of denizens eyeing a resting spot, but in select cities it also has people marveling at their good looks. Designers from all over the world are adding flavor—with a healthy dose of colorful whimsy—to otherwise gray streets with these seats, benches, planters, and the like, but what makes these pieces even better is that tourists and locals alike actually use them, demonstrating that good modern design puts function at the heart of creation. Whether custom-designed or off-the-shelf, we break down a list of some of the coolest pieces on streets and boardwalks right now.

Key Bike Rack by Santa & Cole Nothing says locking up your bike like a “key” rack, created by Spanish designers Santa & Cole. This brightly colored design—yellow and red are just a couple of the options—provides some flair to any sidewalk, offering a powerful security tool and admirable aesthetics at the same time (as seen in this photo from Fort Lauderdale, Florida).
