Bancal

2000

The Bancal bench forms extensive lines of seating, where humility takes precedence over any rhetorical manifesto. Composed of elements with minimal formal expression and increased communal function, a sheet of folded steel shapes the structure, with the seat and backrest being composed of solid wooden slats.

Modular and robust

A simple, efficient urban bench, designed for interaction scenarios, and for withstanding extreme uses. The possibility of alternating or aligning backrests allows for the creation of everyday settings that reinforce social wellbeing, while the superior materials withstand the demands of the urban space.

Typology

The bench is the quintessential element in the urban setting. It permits rest, conversation, gazing at views, while adding quality to the public space. A backrest to provide greater comfort, with or without armrests to help users get up, made from use-resistant materials and finishes.

One segment with backrest: 110
Armrest: 4

The banquette is a second essential element in the urban space. Without a backrest, it is useful for areas with work surfaces or tables, or to create areas of more fleeting rest.

One segment without backrest: 80
Armrest: 4
*Approximate weight without packaging (kg)

Aligned rest elements are essential for defining this space-creating function. Continuity in the composition facilitates social relations and encourages interweaving of narratives in city life.

One segment without backrest: 80
One segment with backrest: 110
2 segments with 1 backrest: 184
3 segments with 2 inverted backrests: 284
3 segments with 3 backrests: 299
