Figure 1: One of the Riverside bike racks
This summer our friends and clients over at the Riverside Renaissance Movement installed a series of custom, artistic site furnishings along the East Bay Bike Path in the heart of Riverside, East Providence.
Artist Kristina Brown designed these very playful bike racks, bench and trash can by drawing inspiration from nautical themes. In an attempt to diversify from the iconic anchor, she looked at source imagery of sails, boats, and buoys to make her unique geometric designs.
Kristina and Max Van Pelt fabricated the amenities here at the Steel Yard, and then we sent them out to get powder coated, and delivered them to Riverside.
So, next time you’re biking down the East Bay Bike Path, make a stop in Riverside to grab a bite to eat, and iced coffee, or just to take a break!
