Street Furniture Australia, founded in 1986, is the first designer, manufacturer and supplier of urban environment furniture to be established in Australia. The idea for the company originated in 1974 when leading architects Darrel Conybeare and William Morrison identified the poor quality of street furniture in Australia. With the belief that a mass-manufacturing approach was key to product improvement, they developed their first seat prototype in a suburban backyard in Sydney. The prototype, now known as the ‘Classic Plaza Seat’, was successfully adopted in 1981 to furnish the central city area of Canberra. Other products such as litter bins and bollards were developed and Street Furniture products became established as the standard furnishing in Canberra as well as Sydney. Some notable historical projects include the bus shelters for the Queen Victoria Building in Sydney, the Telstra phone booth that was distributed nation-wide, and the furniture suite for Macquarie Street and Circular Quay (western foreshore) in Sydney. With more than 320 designed parts, five offices, three factories, a design studio, and an extensive portfolio of both local and international projects, Street Furniture has the experience and design innovation to be the industry leaders of today. #streetfurniturecom
