Redesigned for 2017: The Modena Straight Bench

Rounding out the Modena family of site furnishings is the newly redesigned Modena Straight bench. Modern, memorable, and versatile. Cast aluminum leg-ends are made from recycled automobile & truck rims. This bench also incorporates Wishbone’s unique no-weld construction which makes for easy shipping and assembly.

Car Free Day on Main St. Vancouver & RECYCLE BC

Over the last 20 years, Wishbone has diverted over 2 million pounds of plastics from landfills. The recycled plastic lumber we use reduces waste and conserves over 80% of energy typically used when making new plastic items.
On Sunday, June 18th one of our benches made an appearance at the RECYCLE BC tent on Car Free Day along Main St. in Vancouver.

The Wishbone Demo Trailer

We bring the showroom to you! As we all know, being able to “kick the tires” can make all the difference when deciding on an important purchase. Every year we hit the road with the Wishbone Demo Trailer – a veritable site furnishings showroom on wheels – so that people who are likely to specify or purchase our products really get to see them up close and personal.  Are you with a city, municipality, landscape architect or architect firm? Contact us today to see when we will be in your area! Our 25-45min visits are informative, hands-on, and Q&A based.

May 2017 (Flood Special) CANADA

 
It has been a very wet Spring in BC with lots of rain and melting snowpack swelling the creeks and rivers. Lake Okanagan has hit a record high with still more to come. As you can see, our Wishbone Benches are getting a little wet these days! Hopefully the rising waters settle and people can get back to enjoying the views.

Introducing The City Scape Waste Receptacle

An integral part of any site furnishings family: the waste receptacle. This unit has a small footprint, openings on both sides for easy access, and a funnel design that ensures all waste is directed towards the internal liner. Solid top and rectangular opening are designed to deter locals from disposing household waste.

Donation to Emmanuel Church West Kelowna

Every year Wishbone sets aside funds to help out organizations in the communities that we sell to. This help can come in the form of financial aid or a donation of our site furnishings. One organization we committed to several years ago was Emmanuel Church in West Kelowna, BC. They strongly believe in community and in order to serve the community better recently embarked on a large expansion to include a 600 seat auditorium and commercial kitchen. The project funding was limited and unfortunately there was not a lot left over for exterior seating. Community support can come from inside as well outside and we felt we could help out by putting a little “icing on the cake” so to speak.

Thanks to everyone for their part in making this happen.
 

AIBC Annual Conference 2017

Wishbone was thrilled to be a first-time sponsor & exhibitor at the AIBC Annual Conference. In addition to great brand exposure we gained a better understanding of relationships between the Landscape Architect firms we already deal with and the Architects they often overlap with on certain projects. Attendees enjoyed taking outdoor breaks throughout the day on our Urban Form, City Scape, and Annison series.

Introducing The City Scape Bench

 Modern. Arresting. This bench almost appears to be in motion or “on the move” – its twist on the ordinary catches one off guard. A ¾ back rest spells relief for the harried commuter, while the unique diving board-styled end provides options and flexibility in locating this bench in any environment.

2017 BCRPA Symposium

Another excellent BCRPA event! Exhibitors were encouraged to have a game at their booth. We choose a bean bag toss in to our new City Scape Waste Receptacle.

Lots of fun was had by all - it looked easier than it was! Winner of our gift bag full of “Made in the Okanagan” treats was Heath Mahoney from Canadian Recreation Excellence in Chilliwack BC.

Introducing The Aylesbury Bench

The Aylesbury Bench incorporates design cues and components from a few of our other benches. Can you figure out which benches we borrowed which features from?

BCRPA Spring Training Event: Chair Winner!

Congrats to Ron LaPoint from the City of Coquitlam - he was the lucky winner of the Adirondack Chair this year at the BCRPA Spring Training event in Langley. He said this was the first time he had won anything at the event in over 15 years of attending. It was worth the wait and we're sure it will get lots of use this summer!

The event was well attended and Wishbone had the opportunity to chat with folks from all around BC. We showcased the new Annison Bench, Freedom 32 Waste Receptacle, and Urban Space Bike Rack.
 
Wishbone was proud to sponsor and participate in Kelowna's Gospel Mission's 6th Annual Strides to End Homelessness Fundraiser in early March. This fun, family friendly, fundraising 5k walk or 10k run works towards ending homelessness in Kelowna.

Wishbone Bench & Bronze Sculpture by Nathan Scott for the Lacombe Police Station

Wishbone provided the seating component for this commission piece located at the Lacombe Police Station.

The new police station features a cast bronze sculpture of a police officer on a bench at the main entrance, which helps create a warm and inviting environment for the public. The sculpture, created by renowned Canadian artist Nathan Scott, is the newest addition to the City’s public art collection, and was commissioned through the City’s Percent for Art policy, where one percent of qualifying municipal construction budgets is set aside to cover the costs of implementing and developing the public art collection.

“It was a real pleasure creating this sculpture, and I hope that the people of Lacombe will enjoy it for generations to come,” said artist Nathan Scott.

Here is a short article from The City of Lacombe
Watch this short video of sculptor Nathan Scott as he builds the public art piece for the Lacombe Police Station.

Prince Rupert Welcomes Whale Tales!

Store owner Glen Saunders is recognizing the community for their support by investing in 'whale tail' benches that are placed around the city.

Cow Bay Gift Galley owner Glen Saunders says the whale tail is a continuation of a theme he started years ago

Wishbone Roadtrip to Manitoba

This July the Wishbone demo trailer made a 2269KM trip from our headquarters in Langley, BC to attend the CSLA-AAPC 2016 CONGRESS event in Winnipeg, Manitoba. On the way to the show we saw clients new and old. Across four provinces we visited Cities, Municipalities, Towns, and Landscape Architects to give them a first-hand look at our site furnishings. We look forward to seeing our furniture make similar (one-way) trips in the future!
