Landscape Forms has been in business for more than 40 years. The company’s corporate offices are located in Kalamazoo, MI. Many of their unique products result from collaborating with international industrial and interior designers, architects, and landscape architects. Landscape Forms partners include such luminaries as Frog Design, Santa & Cole, and Robert A.M. Stern.
Landscape Forms partnered with Frog Design to develop the 35 Collection, “the next generation of outdoor furniture for the way we live, work, learn and play.” Part of the 35 Collection, Chill is a chaise lounge for commercial outdoor spaces. Sculptural and sleek, Chill welcomes people to stop and relax, supporting “the sitter in a position that’s reclined, but not exposed.” Constructed of rotationally molded polyethylene, Chill withstands heavy use and cold climates. The chaise lounge is also easy to clean and colorful: Chill is available in black, fog, otter, sky, blue bell, daisy, melon, grass, and pine.
A graceful bench with a subtly curved backrest, Melville is part of the Concord Collection designed by Robert A.M. Stern Architects. Distinctive yet familiar, Melville gives a nod to the past while being “contemporary in spirit.” Melville bench lets people sit comfortably, their backs leaning into the curve, and its top edge is a perfect place to rest arms. Melville is also available as a backless bench with gently flared end frames.
A simple and versatile street lamp designed by Gonzalo Milá, Rama, meaning branch in Spanish, delivers the latest in LED technology in an organic shape. Providing directional, white light, Rama “provides a great visual experience with reduced light pollution and excellent performance with reduced energy consumption.” The light source comes from an extended branch—the namesake Rama—which is attached to the pole. Rama is available with one, two, or five luminaires mounted in different directions and at different heights. The five-version model most resembles a tree with sprouting limbs.
Landscape Forms strives to “address form and function in unique and intelligent ways.” The company has consistently created unique outdoor products by investing in leading edge technology, collaborating with talented design partners, and thinking about location and environments.
