Concret seeks to review the classic “Romantic” bench, transmitting a sensation of enormous lightness that contrasts with the weightiness normally associated with concrete. The result is a modular system that permits the assembly of curved pieces to shape benches as meeting points, complemented by the seat and table that accompany the collection.
Designed to furnish the outdoor public areas and gardens surrounding the Alta Diagonal Building in Barcelona. Circular benches on the pavement of the Diagonal avenue and chair in the gardens.
The concave bench permits the aggregation of two or three modules, forming a semi- or a three-quarter circle, respectively.
The Concret collection is made up of a concave modular bench and chair with the same UHPC-Slimconcrete cross section, groove-like textured finish and standard chart colours. The cast aluminium supports are the same in both models. The low table with a diameter of 100 cm and height of 60 cm are also made from UHPC-Slimconcrete. The bench, chair and table are anchored to the paving with M-10 x 100 threaded sleeves.
