ARTISTS: CG X SAM WILLIAMS STUDIO
CLIENT: COVENTRY CITY COUNCIL
LOCATION: COVENTRY BUS INTERCHANGE
Collaboration with a local upcoming artist to produce a series of sculptural street furniture to improve well-being and reintroduce greening.
The CG x Sam Williams Studio Parklet is inspired by the modernist and brutalist architecture of the city of Coventry.
A prototype bench planter to be sited in the new bus interchange adjacent to the flagship redevelopment of Coventry's train station, the design needed to be flexible and playful. We worked with local artist and member of the CG team, Sam Williams Studio to produce a clean, minimalist design with her signature playful forms, introducing pink accent details which reflect the aesthetic of the other recent public art commissions in the city centre that Creative Giant was involved in commissioning in the lead-up to Coventry City of Culture 2021.
