Oakland landmark mixed-use waterfront area Jack London Square now features an array of modern outdoor benches and other seating manufactured by Oslo, Norway-based Vestre and fabricated from Kebony modified wood.
The waterfront park project, designed by Oakland-based landscape architects EinwillerKuehl, utilizes dozens of pieces of outdoor furniture by Vestre, fabricated with powder-coated galvanized steel and Kebony Clear Decking. Vestre’s Bloc sunbenches and chairs, and Stoop benches are situated throughout the project, which provides the public easy access to the Oakland/Alameda estuary.
Located in Oakland along the Oakland/Alameda estuary, Jack London Square is Oakland’s only publicly accessible mixed-use waterfront area and a well-known landmark since the mid-1800s. With its rich history as the heart of Oakland’s Port operations, Jack London Square is a historic working waterfront and is one of the Bay Area’s premier recreational, dining and commercial districts, offering a vibrant hub for outdoor recreation, events and the latest dining and entertainment options.
Vestre’s products are produced in Norway and Sweden using top-quality materials, enabling them to be used problem-free for many years. A third-generation, family-owned company, Vestre’s head office is located in Oslo.
