The Design Brief

THE PROBLEM

Recent findings in a variety of internationally conducted government reports show that vehicle-borne threat is a growing concern to public and private assets in the urban environment.

The bollard is the most common and basic form of street vehicle born threat mitigation in urban areas however it has been its potential to compliment urban life and the urban landscape has been largely overlooked.

THE CLIENT

Plico was developed as a response to a design brief established between Nick Puckett Design and Designing Out Crime (DOC). DOC is a consultancy and design company that develops strategies, designs and solutions that aim to deter criminal behaviour.

DOC had established a manufacturing partner in the corrective services workshop located at Silverwater detention centre. The workshop is  equiped for sheet metal fabrication. Their fabrication limitations helped direct the design of Plico.

THE SOLUTION

Plico is an elegant, multifunctional, adaptable, and sculptural structural bollard which aims to provide the protection needed, but the function of much more than your average bollard.
