Hayward, California (EastBayDaily) — Tournesol Siteworks LLC, a manufacturer of products for the commercial landscape market, has announced a new relationship with Street & Garden Furniture Co. of Brisbane, Australia. The Northern-California based company, primarily known as a manufacturer of pots, planters, living wall systems and container irrigation, will begin marketing and manufacturing bench, table and other site furnishing designs from the Australian manufacturer.
“Street & Garden Furniture has a stable of extremely talented designers and their site furnishings represent a new direction largely unexplored in our market today”, commented Christopher Lyon, president of Tournesol Siteworks. “As a leader in the Australian site furnishings business, they have moved the market from commodity products toward design customization based upon the needs of the customer. We hope to do the same here.” The furniture will be assembled in the company’s Northern California facility, from parts manufactured in the U.S. and Australia.
The first product introduced will be the TWIG bench, a highly configurable public seating solution, developed to promote social interaction. Designed in 2007 by award-winning Australian designer Alexander Lotersztain, TWIG is already a bestseller in Australia and Europe. It will be available in lightweight concrete and lightable polyethylene plastic.
“Street & Garden has over twenty years of developing successful designs for customers such as the City of Brisbane, the City of Sydney for the Olympic Games, and numerous townships, universities, and hospitals” said David Shaw, president and founder of Street & Garden Furniture. “We felt working with Tournesol would be the best way to introduce our designs to the North American market.”
