Story

Based in Brisbane, Australia, the Street + Garden design studio is an award-winning team specialising in product design for urban spaces. S+G was conceived around the idea that urban products can be much more than simply something to sit on; a reflection of a particular place, community, its natural and built assets, its history, aspirations and future that are important and synonymous with its site.

We strive to empower our design partners to become part of the fabric that tells the story of place. To create long-lasting and sustained value well into the life of the product, by creating products that are both meaningful and relevant to the space they inhabit, and to the people a part of its lifecycle.
