Scope: Soheil Mosun Limited was contracted to fabricate these modern custom designed zipper benches for a park area in New York City.
Highlights: The bench is made of steel gables for the support structure and rolled ribs with custom rolled and fit arm rests. The bench was then powder coated with a metallic silver finish suitable for exterior applications. Ribs are 1/4" roll formed steel. Arm rests are 1/2" roll formed steel. This design has particular attributes which are attractive to parks departments, namely the bench acts as a tree trunk protector. (Actual location of Peter Minuit Plaza not shown)
