The 2020 lockdown struck an especially hard blow to the economic vitality of commercial streets. Driven by a strong desire to support economic recovery through an eco-friendly and sustainable transition of our public facilities, Superwise, in collaboration with Industrial Designer
Raphael Hernandez, developed a line of agile, safe and durable street furniture shaped from a block of Quebec granite.
MTR starts with this rounded block of stone, to which colourful wood and sheet metal accessories are added. By combining accessories, colours and the layout of the bases, MTR offers many potential configurations that highlight the uniqueness of each type of public space.
