Date: August 2012
Location: North Limburg, Netherlands
Background: The World Horticultural Expo, Floriade, takes place every 10 years with more than 100 organisations and countries taking part. Floriade 2012 consisted of five unique themed ‘worlds’ where visitors learn about and from nature.
Project details: Townscape provided 120 steel recycling bins to Floriade in a range of colours. These were manufactured in Townscape’s Nottinghamshire factory and exported to the Netherlands for the international show.
Result: The organisers of Floriade were impressed by the construction quality of Townscape’s bins and the stylish, contemporary design; the orange coloured bins were a particular favourite. Once the show finished the bins were redistributed and used in streets across Holland.
