The Kiama suite has proven to be very popular since it’s introduction in 2016. First designed for the City of Boroondara, they were launched as a standard product line shortly after. The Kiama range quickly gained popularity with other councils, and then schools and other open space facilities soon started specifying the Kiama designs in their plans also. Many municipalities now have their custom specs locked in based on the Kiama designs. The Kiama range is regularly ordered for placement in new recreational spaces or to refresh established street furniture sites with modern street furniture.
The popularity of Kiama furniture throughout Australia means Kiama can be considered an industry standard. A cohesive suite of furniture with a modern feel incorporating classic curves that will suit any environment. The design has changed only slightly over the years, providing the opportunity to include many standard options that allow it to be customised to suit the needs of the application or environment.
The standard suite
Free Standing options
Later, some customers wanted their furniture to be movable if required and all base models were optioned with freestanding frames. The overall design was the same, but the legs were given a wider stance for stability when not bolted down. Bolt down holes were still provided and many customers preferred the freestanding leg style. It was decided the the new leg design should be another standard option.
Kiama seats have optional armrests and Kiama tables have an optional umbrella hole and a wheelchair variant for accessibility.
To round out the suite, a heavy duty bike rail was designed, made from solid flat bar steel and featuring the same curve found on standard Kiama furniture. And to compliment the suite, an all stainless steel drinking fountain was also included.
Like all Draffin Street Furniture products, the Kiama suite is manufactured to the highest standards ensuring a lifetime of service outdoors.
The Kiama Platform Bench
Custom street furniture is Draffin Street Furniture’s focus, and customers can request modifications to our standard furniture lines. Recently we have observed increased enquiries on platform benches, and not long after a customer requested a platform bench designed to suit the Kiama aesthetic. Upon completion it was agreed that Draffin Street Furniture should add this product to the Kiama suite.
The Kiama Platform Bench is essentially an extended standard bench and perfectly demonstrates Draffin Street Furniture’s ability to customise our standard products at the customers request. Due to the size of the platform, our engineers recommended extra bracing underneath the battens to strengthen and support the structure, ensuring an extended service life.
