There definitely has been an increase in 'street furniture' designs as many metropolitan cities look for ways to be aesthetically pleasing and playful. Sam Jacob Studio's project in Shenzhen, China is one of the latest pieces of 'street furniture' to capture the attention of publications like Dezeen.
The design is monolithic in nature and geometrically influenced, which edges it towards more contemporary sensibilities. It is made up of two triangular volumes in grey and yellow and two red-and-white striped poles. The foundation supports a turquoise disk. In its functional extension, the street furniture is intended to serve the purpose of a shelter and Sam Jacob Studio gives it the name of 'Yantian Dolmen.'
