Bison ipê wood deck tiles and adjustable pedestals were used in the first ever pop-up park in the country at the Mojo Café in San Francisco, CA. The pop-up park has been in use since 2010 and re-purposed street space for people rather than cars. The parklet, which takes up space formally occupied by two parked vehicles, provides several hundred square feet of benches, tables, planters and bike racks.
The pilot program in San Francisco was a huge success and increased sales at the café by up to 20%. As a result, additional employees were hired. The success of this program led the way for dozens of similar projects across the city, making livable streets possible all over the United States.
