Explore the possibilities – waves and curves in landscape design

According to research conducted in the USA entitled “Do Curves matter?”, 80% of subjects actively liked curves in images of landscapes. Sweeping curves in particular are often used to entice and draw people in, exploiting the natural tendency for the eye to follow around, beyond and to the conclusion of a curve. Curves and waves provide fluidity, and the scope for informal, naturalistic design, often being used to lay out shapes and areas and add visual interest to schemes.

Wave-form and serpentine shapes are a popular choice for external seating, often employed in double aspect situations where sitters can choose which way to view their surroundings. The RailRoad seating range provides the opportunity to create a wide variety of wave forms, from gentle waves to accentuated forms as well as more organic layouts, all made possible through the introduction of directional changes at different points:

Low profile wave layouts

A subtle variation to straight seating.


Distinct S-shape layouts

Creating accentuated forms of waves.


Adjoined half circles and elongated S-shapes

Creating a pronounced wave dynamic, making a significant visual statement.
