Starfish Stop Skateboarders

#42. Starfish Stop Skateboarders

Urban furniture

Skatestoppers come in five product lines, all with the same purpose: to prevent skateboarders, bikers, and rollerbladers from damaging structures by riding on them. Made of cast, extruded, or die-cut metal and available in a variety of styles, Skatestoppers can be integrated into new construction or attached to existing structures such as walls, benches, handrails, fountains, planters, or curbs. The metal shapes act as speed bumps by interrupting the long, smooth surfaces that skateboarders use and prevent them from interacting with the built environment.
