Vondel Verses

February 22, 2009

Vondel Verses, a set of designs for a kiosk, a park bench and a lamp post, won a competition to design new lighting and furniture for the Vondelpark in Amsterdam, the Netherlands.

Each design contains a different organic motif such as birds in the frame of the bench. The furniture is made from cast iron and painted black.

The concept will be extended to other items, such as drinking fountains, signposts and litter bins, and will gradually replace existing furniture in the park from 2010 onwards.

I like the birds on the lamp so much although it’s really none functional unless it scares away real birds…
