Kalamazoo, MI – November 30, 2020 – Landscape Forms, North America’s leading designer and manufacturer of high-design, site furniture, structure, LED lighting, and accessories, introduces Bravo Bistro, a contemporary take on the familiar bistro folding dining set that is more robust in construction and more contemporary in design.
“The bistro chair has been a symbol of social gathering and outdoor living for over a century. The problem is, it’s also been known for its flimsy construction and poor durability. We decided to change that,” asserts Landscape Forms Chief Creative Officer, Kirt Martin. “For anyone who’s familiar with sitting in a traditional bistro chair, this is a whole new experience,” adds Martin. “The iconic bistro set is a proven design concept, a classic inspiration. But we’ve truly amped the quality through greater attention to detail in engineering, manufacturing and choice of materials –- all while keeping Bravo Bistro competitively priced.”
With today’s fast-growing need for flexible outdoor seating, gathering and dining solutions, Martin and his team went to work to reimagine the traditional bistro chair and table as only Landscape Forms can, setting a new bar for durability and quality over any similar product. Featuring heavier gauge metal and thicker, wider slats, the Bravo Bistro chair is more stable, secure and comfortable. The table, also of heavier gauge metal, stands firmly and soundly, making both pieces better able to withstand the abuse of repeated set-up, take-down and stowage.
“When we decided to enter this product category, we knew we had to do it our way, with a signature design and quality statement,” says Landscape Forms President of Site Furnishings & Structure, Robb Smalldon, of Bravo Bistro. “It’s unlike any bistro set in the market. Now, customers from landscape architects, to facility managers to restaurateurs have a compelling new choice that offers aesthetics, durability and value.”
The Bravo Bistro chair and table, by design, embody flexibility —the ability to easily adapt space along sidewalks, pedestrian zones, courtyards, plazas, terraces and others is an increasingly important part of safely facilitating social interaction. Easily arranged, reconfigured and stowed, Bravo Bistro creates efficient and comfortable go-to spaces for corporate campuses, schools and universities, restaurants and communities.
