    For mmcité, making street furniture is nothing less than a cultural mission. The possibility to change the face of cities by installing just a few small elements from high-quality materials.  For more than twenty-five years the Czech based design studio has earned a great reputation for its excellent designs for the public realm.

    “Our furniture offers all citizens fine quality and influences their taste without any exclusivity. Indisputable equality” says David Karásek, leading designer and co-owner of mmcité.

    mmcité is not only a supplier of high-quality street furniture but also a partner to all those who want to create something special within public spaces.

Well recognized in the sphere of street furniture design on the global scale, mmcité operates with 37 branches, and its products became part of daily life in cities from Paris through to Moscow, Dubai to New York and San Francisco.

  • Another major award for Pixel seating system, this time a prestigious 2019 Red Dot design award. An international jury of leading experts from around the world has crowned the unconventional Pixel seating system, made of leftover materials. Representing the award-winning product were David Karásek, chie designer of mmcité1, and design duo Herrmann & Coufal. They backed upcycling – using material that would otherwise be thrown away – to create an outdoor seating system which stunned audiences with its variability and fresh design. As the world’s most prestigious design award, the Red Dot Award was the most pleasant of surprises. Every year the Design Zentrum Nordrhein Westphalen gives out the Red Dot awards for the best product design achievements of the year, and only one percent of entrants come away with a prize.

    “Making the best possible use out of our materials is, of course, a huge consideration for us, and it begins with the design itself. Not wasting material is the most ecological thing to do, but how do you make use of something that would normally be thrown away? That was the real challenge. We wanted to design a product that would be aesthetically unique, bring something genuinely new to the public realm, and also use up timber which would have otherwise ended up burnt as firewood. We have also come up with a way to anchor small wooden lamellas to the frame in a unique, patented way.” explains David Karásek from mmcité1.

    Pixel is unique not only conceptually, but also in the possibilities it opens up. It is based around a simple square module supported by a single central leg, from where an endless variety of seating arrangements can spawn. The seat consists of wooden lamellas, which can be arranged in various orientations to form part of the playful design created by the final arrangement. The seating can be accented with backrests attached anywhere on the seating area, as well as small cylindrical flowerpots which fit the same grid as the seats themselves. The Pixel name did not come about by chance – it really is possible to create pixel-like forms in real life public spaces, not trapped on a screen. Lastly, but by no means least, Pixel creates a comfy place to sit.
  • Alongside our own pieces, our portfolio features products by Out-sider – the Danish brand bringing Scandinavian design and timeless urban style to the public realm. They design multifunctional products for all ages, divided into four ranges:

    SIT & STAY
    An array of sets, including benches with a HPL and steel structure, and all-in-one seating and table units made of polyethylene, make up the Sit & Stay collection. They allow a great degree of flexibility for seating a large group of people. The functional and stylish collection combines various colours and is made of durable materials that are almost maintenance free.

    BOLLARDS
    This is a range of clean, simple cylindrical forms made of polyethylene or high-strength concrete, designed not just for seating, but also for jumping and enticing passers-by to play. Thanks to its variability, individual pieces can be arranged in all kinds of formations. The mobility of the Bollards collection allows you to place pieces on streets or in squares, and some of them can even serve as safety features where traffic control is required.

    FAMILIES
    A playful and colourful line-up comprising varied polyethylene seating elements, which can be made into various geometric forms. The colourful possibilities let these seating elements create a unique environment. The Families range is best suited for use in children‘s playgrounds and schools, where its vibrance makes it an integral part of play.

    LIGHT 
    As the name suggests, this is a collection of illuminated street furniture which serves as both seating and street lighting to help you safely find your way in the dark. The products are either plugged into the mains, or have built in solar powered LED lighting for easy installation anywhere, with no cables required.

  • A massive block supported by sharp spikes – particularly this contrast has the best effect in a public space. The effect is emphasized by the generous proportions of the bench. These proportions are even more underlined if several modules are lined up creating long rows. There is a monumentally simple backless variant as well as a practical and comfortable version with backrest with conically shaped single seats. Another special feature is a two color steel base offered in 6 color combinations. Both practical and attractive accessory for the benches with backrest is a durable steel table intended to place a drink, laptop or book. The contrast color of the table also brings a playful element into this bench. The built-in USB charger might be handy for those who like to stay outside a little longer. The LED backlight available for whole blocq product range comes to the fore in the evening.

    We also have a solar powered version of this iconic bench - the blocq solar. In place of the usual wood, solar panels protected by safety glass cover the seat. The solar panels power USB sockets for charging mobile devices and also a wireless charging point. This technological gem makes no aesthetic sacrifices to achieve its functionality either; it maintains excellent design and is fully compatible with other pieces of street furniture.
