    ZAC de "la Correspondance" Rovaltain (site of Valence TGV station - 2003 (Client: Syndicat mixte de Rovaltain / Main contrator: Atelier Sempervirens, AREP)
Specially-created for the environments of the three new stations built on the TGV Méditerranée line, and developed at the request of local authorities, Orlam is a complete collection of urban furniture.

The range includes lighting masts, bus stops, seating, litter baskets, railings, bollards and markers, designed according to a single stylistic line.
Uncluttered and discreet, the design makes extensive use of two materials, namely metal and wood.
The originality of the concept is based on the use of glued laminate wood as the vertical structural component. The metal component, ie, cast aluminium, is used horizontally and offers the necessary resistance for the most exposed parts of the furniture: seats, basket tops, lighting bases, and so on.
