Streetscape Walking Tour with Fabien Cappello

Fabien Cappello (Paris, 1984) is an award winning furniture and product designer working across contexts from commercial objects to limited editions and the public space. He studied at the University of Art and Design (ECAL) in Lausanne, Switzerland and in 2009 obtained a Masters degree in Design Products at the Royal College of Art, London. Cappello was appointed Stanley Picker Fellow in 2013.

Streetscape seeks to explore how street furniture inhabits and relates to its surroundings. Designer Fabien Cappello is inspired by the everyday and how we negotiate our urban spaces. From bollards, bike stands to public benches these generally anonymously designed, often unnoticed, objects are the workhorses of the built environment.
