Sedi emerged from the desire to bring technological advancement to the public realm, in an effortless furniture form that inspires and intrigues. Sedi has a special quality in that it’s a product of South Australian innovation, a collaboration between JPE Design Studio as designer and Specialised Solutions as fabricator to arrive at an outcome that is an asset to any environment in which it is placed. Together we identified a gap in the market whereby strong design and integrated smart technology could co-exist, giving users access to wireless charging stations, USB ports and LED lighting which are all powered by the unit’s integrated solar panel.
Driven by a commitment to sustainable outcomes, Sedi is designed with long lasting, sustainable materials that have been chosen based on their durability, recyclability and suitability for urban environments and public use. Sedi represents a new level of comfort, amenity and connectivity in a piece of standalone urban furniture.
