"The Buoys are Back in Town"

Posted on November 26 2019

"The Buoys are Back in Town"

Boat Fenders Direct are delighted to have sponsored a new architecture project ran by the London Festival of Architecture and Royal Docks Team.

"The Buoys are Back in Town" was a piece commissioned by McCloy + Muchemwa (Twitter: @mccloymuchemwa) and was sponsored by the supply of our Polyform A5 Red buoys to help with the project.

Seeking to flip perceptions and provoke wonder, The Buoys are Back in Town sees simple and attractive Polyform buoys re-imagined into a modular seating system that can be an engaging conversation starter for everyone to enjoy. In challenging our familiarity with these ordinary objects, this bright, floating bench makes use of the particular and strange visual qualities of the buoy to provide a place for looking out across the docks, watching boats and aeroplanes – a seat suspended on air.
