OAKLAND, Calif. -- Jack London Square, an Oakland landmark waterfront area, now features modern outdoor benches and other seating manufactured by Oslo, Norway-based Vestre and fabricated from Kebony modified wood.
The waterfront park project, designed by Oakland-based landscape architects EinwillerKuehl, uses dozens of pieces of outdoor furniture by Vestre, fabricated with powder-coated galvanized steel and Kebony clear decking. Vestre’s Bloc sunbenches and chairs, and Stoop benches are situated throughout the project.
Located along the Oakland/Alameda estuary, Jack London Square is Oakland’s only publicly accessible mixed-use waterfront area and a well-known landmark since the mid-1800s. Jack London Square is a historic working waterfront and is one of the Bay Area’s premier recreational, dining and commercial districts.
Vestre’s products are produced in Norway and Sweden using top-quality materials, enabling them to be used problem-free for many years. Kebony is a sustainable wood that doesn’t require any maintenance besides basic cleaning. See http://kebony.com/us
