BAY Gate is a subdivision which suits high numbers waiting for short periods of time. Made from recyclable materials, this part of the line incorporates the space and cabling required for current and future technologies, including plug sockets and induction charging. Less business-like and more convivial is the curvilinear BAY Lounge, which adapts to the needs of those waiting over longer periods of time. ‘We are proud to present this collaboration between Poltrona Frau and Fosters + Partners, with whom we have been jointly pursuing the development of new design and creative landscapes for public spaces,’ says Nicola Coropulis, CEO of Poltrona Frau. ‘This represents an important area of interest for the brand, which has already completed more than 5,000 public spaces projects with its Custom Interiors business unit and is constantly committed to researching innovative design solutions.’ While the pandemic slowed down progress in this particular area, Coropulis is adamant that they are back on track with fresh solutions to meet the needs of public spaces, globally. ‘The BAY System project surely represents an important milestone in meeting such needs,’ he says.
