The materials in Helsinki have a long life-cycle. They endure the challenging climate, and they are recyclable. The materials are defined according to their aesthetic qualities and use specifications from the point of views of weather conditions, such as rain, frost and sunshine. The strongest components of the visual identity are red-and-black granite and painted dark steel in street furniture. The specifications of surface finishing can be found under the title “Materials and surfaces”. More information about the surface finishing of steel and wood in furniture and accessories in Helsinki can be found
in the Design Manual of Street Furniture in Helsinki..
