Public Elements
Those who plan, develop and manufacture for the public space take on a great responsibility as the various user personas of the citizens in traffic, during work or during leisure time and their different age-appropriate user requirements are frequently interwoven. Public elements by Burri, products, systems and fixtures for the public space, accommodate this challenge. Quality bears a comprehensive significance for Burri: if all requirements regarding technology, safety, costs and serviceability are met, sustainability is evidenced by the fact that future urbanistic and spatial developments are made possible. Thus functional and creative requirements with a view to service and safety designate today's standard. Burri stands out due to user and customer orientation, well-founded experience with development, construction design and manufacture and through a clear philosophy of sustainability and cost-effectiveness in the market.
