Anova recently introduced the Infinity Collection, a scaleable modular bench system that allows landscape architects to explore unique ways to integrate seating into the landscape.
Debuting at the October 2018 ASLA Annual Meeting & Expo in Philadelphia, the impressive scale of the gracefully curved 12’ long benches caught and held the eye of attendees and sparked excitement.
Robert Patterson, Anova’s Industrial Design Engineer who was chief designer for the collection, explains: “Infinity’s curved benches can be configured together to create curves, semi-circles, serpentines or ellipses, as well as straight line benches for direct runs in any length. The collection’s infinite possibilities are what drove its name.”
Landscape architects’ demand for exciting new seating triggered the collection’s creation. In the last few years Anova has experienced a high demand for custom benches that fit this profile, so manufacturing easily configurable seating that did not limit the designer’s imagination was a logical next step.
Infinity is available in either recycled plastic planks or Thermory® thermally-modified hardwood. A recent high-profile installation was completed for the Colts Canal Playspace in Indianapolis, which features a 42’ long semi-circle bench surrounding the Colts-themed playground. Five additional large-scale curved benches complete the project along downtown’s scenic Central Canal.
