As wooden material has been used in many different areas in the historical process, today it is frequently used in urban furniture within the scope of landscape applications. It is very important that the materials used should be eco-friendly and compatible with the design. Within the scope of this study, different urban furniture produced from wood and wood-based materials were examined in order to improve the existing designs. In the samples examined, urban furniture designed in accordance with general design principles are considered; Determinations have been made within the framework of elements such as aesthetics, size, form, ergonomics, functionality, construction, material, durability, safety, layout and economy. In addition, various suggestions have been given for the development of urban furniture, which is a part of landscape applications, and the emergence of new designs in harmony with nature, by examining the visually and material types on the sample wooden reinforcements.
