Dublin City Council invites artists and designers to submit their ideas for three unique pieces of street furniture which will showcase the new-look Grafton Street. The pieces are:

  • A seat for the top of Grafton Street (between St. Stephen’s Green and Chatham Street)
  • 12 unique art works which will also function as bollards
  • One design for a set of 10 ‘perch seat bollards’

The public Art Competition is open to all Irish and international designers and artists. Individuals or teams can apply for one or more of the three commissions. The council will shortlist five designs for each of the three categories.

Dublin City Council will host a briefing session on the competition at the City Walls Space, Woodquay Venue, Civic Offices, Dublin 8 at 11am on 7th November as part of Design Week. An edited film of this session will be posted on www.dublincitypublicart.ie shortly afterward. To book a space please email graftonstreetquarter@dublincity.ie

The closing date for Stage 1 is at 1.00 pm on Thursday, 5th of December 2013.
