L A S N p ro d u c t p re v i e w October 2016 69 Modern. Elegant. Excellence in design. Presenting the internationally acclaimed and award-winning mmcité site furnishings from the Czech Republic. Distributed in the USA by Modern Design & Site Furnishings, mmcité offers specifiers a one- stop-shop with a full range of designs for site furnishings in all categories - Bus & Bike Shelters, Benches, Trash Receptacles, Bike Racks, Bollards, Planters, and more. The signature mmcité bright orange catalog got its start in 1994, when visionary founders David Karasek and Radek Hegmon won a design competition with their innovative and modern bus shelter design. They soon followed this success with a complete collection of contemporary furnishings that soon spread throughout Europe, the Middle East, Latin America, Australia and North America. Admired for their clean lines, durable materials and careful craftsmanship, mmcité products fulfill their founders' motto, "We can completely change the face of cities by adding even a few small elements" Careful material selection has been a vital part of mmcité's success in performing in over 35 countries around the world. Using a trusted and tested material palette ensures the final products continue to be an inviting aspect of the project space for years to come. Featuring Jatoba tropical hardwood ("Brazilian Cherry"), Black Locust, powder- coated galvanized steel, cast aluminum, tempered glass, and high pressure laminate (HPL) graphic plates as core materials, mmcité products embody durability as much as they do beauty in form. With their core design and manufacturing synergies, mmcité is receptive to accept custom designs as well. Architects all over USA and around the world have found mmcité's well-matched and wide range a good fit for projects in all segments – transportation, parks, residential, commercial, industrial, mixed use, educational, urban streetscape and others. Recent additions to the collection highlight mmcité's commitment to understand and address the needs of the landscape architects, construction teams and owners. Our shelters have been re-engineered to meet the highest structural wind, snow, and seismic loads from around the country to ensure local compliance and public safety. mmcité now offers Resysta wood alternative products, an innovative new material made of rice husk, mineral oil, and salt, as a step towards the future of sustainable design. We have expanded into entirely new product lines like the award- winning Rivage lounge chair, winner of the Chicago Athenaeum's 'Good Design Award' in 2015 for excellence in industrial design. Despite its global reputation for excellence in design, mmcité has always emphasized a key component of its mission: responsible pricing. With increasing focus on budgets, mmcité balances aesthetics and economics in their designs. Yes, Modern. Elegance. Excellence and Economy, too.
