Landscape Forms—a world-renown, outdoor-furniture design company, asked DISHER to become an extension of their team on a prestigious Pier 26 in Hudson River Park redesign. DISHER was tasked with taking a stunning, ecologically-minded wall panel and seating design and make it manufacturable. The scope of the project was so expansive that DISHER was called in to do the design engineering for manufacturing for phase two of the three-phase project.
As with other projects DISHER has done with Landscape Forms, this was a massive one-of-a-kind build. DISHER had to figure out how to engineer a wooden, 400-foot-long wall with integrated windows that started at 42 inches and rose to seven feet and then descended back to handrail height. In addition to the wall, DISHER had to engineer a 35-foot-long bar, bar stools, and a 95-foot bench.
DISHER’s design for manufacturing worked perfectly for the team at Landscape Forms. The wall, bench, and stools are not only aesthetically gorgeous with seamless lines and hidden fasteners—but they are built strong enough to withstand East Coast hurricanes.
“DISHER understands our manufacturing processes and can hit the ground running for our team. We know when we contract DISHER to engineer a solution for us, we can sleep at night with confidence because it will be done right.” – John Shimer, Landscape Forms Inc., Engineering Group Leader – Studio 431
