2013 - A year in review

2013 was an exciting year for the Furnitubes team with the launch of a variety of new products ranges, a new website, new team members and the chance to work on a number of amazing projects. Take a look at some of our best bits!  


New Year = New Products

2013 began with the introduction of a new range of exciting concrete seating products, in addition to improvements to some of our most popular long-standing designs. All of the new products were well received and have since been supplied to a number of schools, green spaces, residential developments and business/retail parks.


February saw the introduction of a new innovative seating range - The Elements. With 1000's of combinations available you are in control of the design. This creative approach has proved popular and since been installed in a number of locations across the UK.


After an increase in enquiries for access control products, Furnitubes increased their own range to give you more choice including speed control, barriers and gates, height restrictors and car park posts.


Cycle lockers were added to Furnitubes extensive cycle parking range.


Brown Hart Gardens opened to the public; Furnitubes supplied the site with a number of bespoke seating and planter modules. May also saw the opening of the Whiteley Village scheme in Hampshire, by Denise Van Outen.


Concrete was the main focus for the month of June, with new concrete mixes being introduced and a range of extension options to our popular Podium seating range.


The Fortis seating range made its debut in July. A new modular concrete and timber seating range, designed to offer an adaptable range of configuration options from a limited number of standard components.


With the summer season in full swing, the Furnitubes team decided to take some time out of the office and enjoy the vibrant and diverse streets of the East End, by taking a guided street art tour. If you haven’t had a chance to look at all of our photographs yet, make sure you do!


One of our biggest achievements in 2013 was the completion of our new website. The whole team got together to develop a more user-friendly site with new features and improved copy – we hope you like it as much as we do!


2 new concrete seating ranges! After the success of our concrete seating product range our design team worked hard to develop two unique seating units – The Drakon and Mesa.


Brown Hart Gardens was shortlisted for the best new public space in the London Planning Awards; we’ve got out fingers crossed for the results in February. John Lewis in Ashford also opened in November; Furnitubes supplied the site with 120 stainless steel Zenith bollards.


2 new employees - we welcomed Emma to the marketing team and Nuno to the design team! Of course December was also the month for secret santa, advent calendars and Christmas parties!  


The team are already hard at work developing new products and responding to enquiries. We wish you all the best in the New Year and look forward to working with you and your colleagues.
