A Visionary Landscape Architect Changes the Face of an Industry

Landscape architect, John Chipman Sr., loved the great outdoors and was passionate about design. Fifty years ago he brought these passions together and founded Landscape Forms, a company with a purpose to create beautifully designed furniture for outdoor spaces. John and his landscape architect friends were the first product designers and his landscaping construction workers the first craftsmen. It was a company founded on design and people, and that legacy continues today.

Landscape Forms is the industry leader in integrated solutions of high-design site furniture, advanced LED lighting, structure, and custom environments. For more than 50 years we have developed and created solutions that help designers and other clients achieve beautiful, functional landscapes that enhance the experience of outdoor space. Our secret is simple. Design, Culture and Craft drive everything we do.

Design
is our identity and first priority. We collaborate with world-renowned designers to create world-class design and cultivate design consciousness at all levels of our company. Our efforts are driven by innovation and focused on providing targeted landscape solutions.
Culture
is the shared passion and common purpose that inspire us. Our culture of participation, responsibility and integrity is laser-focused on providing outstanding products and service.
Craft
is our merging of art and technology at the highest level. It is experience and skill, precision and pride made visible in the signature site furnishings that Landscape Forms customers depend on.
Landscape Forms solutions include a wide range of elements from adaptive outdoor structures to seating, shelters and signage, to bike racks and bollards, litters and LED lights. Our solutions are evidence - and experience - based. We pursue ongoing dialog with the movers and shakers in design and sponsor intelligence-gathering events, including Roundtables on targeted issues, Xtreme Landscape Architecture (XTLA) charettes for future leaders of the profession and students, and seminars such as Lighting Leadership Exchanges (LLXC) at leading universities. We apply our findings to designing and manufacturing products that address the needs of our customers and emerging issues in the landscape; and we work with designers who are experts in their fields and bring unique aesthetic viewpoints.
We are a North American-based company that since our founding in 1969 has earned a reputation for exceptional products and service. Our headquarters and primary manufacturing facility are located in Kalamazoo, Michigan with two satellite facilities nearby and one in Phoenix, Arizona. We have sales representatives throughout North America, South America, the United Kingdom, Australia, the United Arab Emirates and Asia and have formed global marketing partnerships with select companies that share our commitment to design. We have an installed base of products in the U.S. and around the world. Our clients include municipalities, transit centers, corporate, college and health care campuses; and familiar brand leaders such as Harvard University, Linked In, New York Central Park Conservancy, Bryant Park, Google, Coca Cola, Oculus, U.S. Tennis Association (USTA), Nike, National Museum of African American History (Washington, D.C.), Barclays Center, Adidas, Children’s Hospital of Philadelphia, Microsoft, and Uber. We were recently named a Great Place to Work-Certified company, Great Place to Work.
