Street Furniture of the Amsterdam School Spotlighted Street furniture is everywhere around us. We are used to it so much that we rarely notice the presence of these objects in our daily surroundings. Yet, all the public lavatories, post boxes, streetlamps and litterbins make up a part of an interesting history of styles. The turning point in this history came when the architects and artists of the Amsterdam School contributed to street furniture design. In the mid-1910s, designers of the Amsterdam School stepped into the limelight and strove to undertake important commissions. At that time, the municipality of Amsterdam advocated for well-maintained streetscapes.
