Urban furniture for the Aarhus Light Rail
C.F. Møller Architects
The line includes bicycle shelters, windbreaks, bicycle stands, bollards, benches and pump stations. There is a clear connection between the new line of equipment and the original design concept of the light rail, at the same time, the new designs appear with a strong independent identity and a convincing consistency between the individual products.
The overall design idea is based on the interaction between column and bracket. The broad, slim column, can be viewed as a diagrammatically simplified metaphor of the light rails. It further constitutes the robust, structural base for all of the series' elements. The column is combined differently with the hanger, which will appear light and transparent while serving various practical purposes, such as armrest, vandalism protection features, cycle stand and anti-theft protection.
