Description

The BAGDAG CAFÉ bench and seat are a daring proposal that takes the use of a single material to the limit. Precision-bent 8 mm COR-TEN steel sheet generates the ergonomic shape of this product. The properties of CORTEN steel ensure that the profile becomes a continuous line while the material becomes a texture. After sandblasting and a baked finish with “CORTEN-effect” paint, the surface finish is smooth and pleasant to touch. Both items emerge almost immediately from a fleeting but fertile encounter between 20th century visual references and the construction potential of steel sheet. The BAGDAG CAFÉ bench and seat were designed for Escofet in 2000 by architect Helio Piñón as part of the MORELLA Series, which emerged with the idea of creating a suite of professionally-built street furniture, consistent in their form and genuine in their character.
