Circular openings framed by satin anodized machined aluminum rings add a visually elegant appearance to the PORTAL bench. Sustainable black locust slats for the seat impart a rich texture to the overall presentation and may include an optional concealed wireless charging station making it very suitable for public spaces found in municipality properties, parks, retail, and other pedestrian venues. Marker lights on each support pillar provide diffused illumination for general ambience around the bench space. Complementary illuminating columns and bollards provide a cohesive design solution for exterior and interior feature spaces. All hardware is stainless steel.
