Urban furniture systems are completing the last important detail of public places. It serves as a material and direct connection of man to the city. They give the place the last element that forms perfect conditions for the human dimension.
The modular system is adaptable to diverse environments. A set of elements on the same shape principle offers the ability to create any structure. From individual small cushions to the grassy area of the park, despite the analogy of the classic bench, to the interconnected networks of segments that follow each other in a significant way into large spaces.
The city is a grid formed by a set of streets and buildings. The public space into which this furniture is designed is the emergence of street tensions and the disturbance of a common structure. Squares, parks, broad boulevards and any node of the city where free space is created.
The design principle is based on a triangular ground plan. The individual segments are written to the base volume so they can be linked.
Three materials are used with emphasis on their nature.
Concrete as a mass, a volume that is molded into molds. Steel, as the strongest material, works in the supine form and replaces the mass around its periphery. Wood as a permanent ergonomic material for direct contact with humans.
