Ductal® UHP concrete
How to bring rhythm to common objects that intersperse the urban environment?
This is the challenge taken up by Studio Design Francesco Passaniti and its Swing range of urban furniture for Azuly®, a BMI company specializing in the manufacture of high end mineral lamp posts.
The range of products is made of Ductal® ultra-high-performance concrete and consists of a bollard, a wheel deflector, a bench, a planter and a trash bin --available in 10 different colors to blend harmoniously into any urban environment. With its reassuring rounded forms and hollow designs for astonishing transparency and lightness, the entire range is inspired by motion and echoes the rhythm of the city and its residents.
Elegance aside however, the major advantages of this street furniture are its durability and ease of maintenance. Ductal® does away with the need for passive reinforcement and opens the way for designs of extraordinary purity, yet with abrasion resistance close to that of granite.
