Prepare to be Enlightened

This month we are spot lighting new products from two of our long-time trusted brands, BEGA and Designplan. BEGA is proud to introduce a new line of furniture, offering designers and city planners a more holistic solution to outdoor environments. Designplan continues to provide innovative solutions for both indoor and outdoor applications. As always, make sure to visit our line card here to stay up to date on the latest offerings!

Introducing BEGA Furniture - Leveraging core competencies forged over 75 years of success in architectural outdoor lighting, BEGA Furniture delivers comfortable, functional, and timeless designs of the highest quality.

The same unmatched quality and timeless aesthetic BEGA is known for can be found in this new portfolio of products. For all landscape designers and city planners, this means the ability to maintain the classic BEGA design language across even more product types in your outdoor environment.

The initial furniture offering consists of three different design sets (pictured below):

  • BEGA Furniture

  • the RENDEZVOUS Collection by Aubrilam

  • the UTYL Collection by Aubrilam

BEGA Furniture pairs aluminum structures finished in BEGA Unidure™ with durable High Pressure Laminate surfaces, ensuring your projects achieve a long-lasting, continuous design throughout. Tables, chairs, benches, waste management, planters, and partitions comprise BEGA Furniture.

BEGA Furniture is available with two High Pressure Laminate colors: Polar Oak and Marshland Oak.

The RENDEZVOUS collection of outdoor furniture offers quality, flexibility, and function. It adds a unique design aesthetic to the BEGA Furniture offering, and introduces a third construction material, High Performance Concrete.

The UTLY collection brings a specific and fun offering to the BEGA Furniture portfolio. The UTYL Collection by Aubrilam focuses on three primary goals: quality, serviceability, and function.

Illuminated Bench

BEGA also offers illuminated benches in 2 different sizes, 70" and 20". There is a choice of 4 different color temperatures ranging from 27K - 40K.
