San Diego Broadway Pier Benches

The San Diego Broadway Pier is populated with three styles of seating that includes stainless steel M13Z-179 woven wire mesh: simple benches, benches with backs and arms, and café tables. The benches and their specific styles were selected because they look like something a shipbuilder could have crafted. Spain's Escofet designed the benches with backs and arms, while Civitas designed the standard benches. Fabricated by Richardson Steel, a local family-owned business, all the benches were made with laminated Alaskan yellow cedar and wrapped in steel straps, inspired by old ship masts. The strapping serves two purposes: to keep skateboarders from using them and to add visual appeal.
