Contemporary city is a great challenge for architecture, and especially for small urban architecture. Moreover, its inhabitants are demanding as well – they need something creative and  functional at the same moment, something that will not only be another type of decoration, but it has to add a new qualities to their city.

It is demonstrated by the growing number of different festival about design, fashion and trends.

Site furnishings – character of a city

Hidden Face of site furnishings

Site furnishings surround us and they partially create our everyday life. Modern lifestyle often requires from us to live faster,and that is why sometimes we pass by astonishing examples of street furnitures. Only when we find a few moments for a reflection, for a Sunday walk with a family or our loved ones – that’s the time when we can notice that our landscape is made by certain elements, which combined together create a true charm of our neighbourhood, thanks to them our favourite corner becomes special. It can be historical city centre or small, quiet street or contemporary district. Some people prefer classical elegant style or contemporary functionality – both kinds you can find in offer of ZANO, manufacturer of street furniture.
