Mobilier urbain du QIM
L’objectif premier de ce projet était de concevoir un mobilier urbain complet, qui identifie, distingue et valorise le Quartier international de Montréal.

Notre tâche était d’exprimer sans équivoque notre savoir faire en matière de technologies de pointe, notamment en utilisant l’aluminium sous toutes ses formes comme matériau principal c.-à-d. extrusion, moulage par gravité et sous pression, usinage, etc.
 
La thématique gestuelle est basée sur l’arc de cercle, en contraste avec la rectitude verticale. Plusieurs éléments complètent l’ensemble; lampadaires, bancs de parc, supports à vélos, poubelles, appareils de signalisation.
STREET FURNITURE DESIGN FOR THE QUARTIER INTERNATIONAL DE MONTRÉAL
QUARTIER INTERNATIONAL DE MONTRÉAL

The main objective of this project was to design a complete family of urban furniture that clearly identify, distinguish and valorize the Quartier international de Montréal. 

Our primary task was to express strongly our know-how in terms of advance materials technologies using aluminium as a base material in a variety of transformation processes, i.e. extrusion, sand-cast, pressurised die-cast and numerical machining. The thematic visual vocabulary was inspired by the contrast of the circle with the absolute vertical rectitude.

Many elements are included in the project; tandem lighting fixtures and posts, street and park benches, bicycle holders, trash-bins, road sign supports and special hardware components.

The project also include the re-design of the Astral Media column for an optimum visual integration with the overall street furniture vocabulary.

An important particularity of this design is the installation inside the column of the traffic lights control unit. 
This project has been honoured by over 22 national and international Prizes.
