Nu

1991

Award ADI FAD SELECTION

1991

Urban design in its best expression. As a resting or meeting place, the Nu urban bench provides a great facilitating platform. An extensive seat formed by wooden slats, elevated on a robust, galvanized steel structure, with or without backrest, with or without arms.

Jordi Henrich

Jordi Henrich

Jordi Henrich graduated as an architect from the Barcelona School of Architecture (ETSAB) and holds a master's degree in Architecture from Columbia University, NY. His professional career is linked to public space, landscape architecture and urban design. From 1987 to 2004 he worked in the Department of Urban Projects of Barcelona City Council and from 2004 to 2007 in the Public Spaces Service of Barcelona Metropolitan Area. Jordi Henrich was one of the precursors of the urban transformation of the city of Barcelona and its opening up to the sea. We highlight the Port Vell and Barceloneta port and maritime perimeter project (1988-2018) – 6km of seafront promenade linking the city, the port and the beach. This project had several phases, such as the remodelling of the Balconada of the Moll de la Fusta quay, the Paseo de Joan de Borbó promenade and the Barceloneta quay, the Pau Vila and Palau squares, the connection to Via Laietana with the Pas de Sota Muralla, the Barceloneta seafront promenade, Barceloneta park, and the Hotel Vela area (among others). The many local projects include the Cover of the Ronda del Mig road between Diagonal and Pg. de Lluís Companys, the public spaces of La Pau and the Avenida de Roma, as well as the pedestrianisation of streets in central Barcelona. His international projects include the remodelling, along with Joan Forgas, of the Boompjies quay in Rotterdam, also of maritime status , the square and library of Weiblingen, Berlin's Museum Island and the axis formed by Rue Foch, Place de la Prefecture and Plan du Palais in Montpellier.Together with Olga Tarrasó, Jaume Artigues and Miquel Roig he was nominated and awarded in various public space competitions. The “1st phase of the Barceloneta seafront promenade, Barcelona, FAD Exterior Spaces 1996”, the “First Prize of the European Landscape Architecture competition, V Biennial of Spanish Architecture”, the “IV Young Architects of Spain Exhibition” or the “VII Premio Década 2006”. He is a lecturer in Design of Urban Elements at the ELISAVA school and Public Space projects at the ETSAB. He also teaches on the master's degree in Urban Planning at the UPC, and he is a lecturer in projects of the bachelor's and master's degree in Landscape Architecture at the ETSAB. For Jordi Henrich public space has a contemporary, global and architectural character. He improves urban life by integrating historical and technical requirements with social requirements. This has led him to work on the detail of street furniture to confer meaning to the project as a whole. Together with Olga Tarrasó, he is co-author of the Nu bench (1991), the first bench to feature in the Santa & Cole catalogue. Know more

Olga Tarrasó

Olga Tarrasó

Olga Tarrasó obtained a degree in architecture from the Barcelona Higher Technical School of Architecture (ETSAB), and a Masters in Landscape Architecture from the UPC. Olga formed part of the Urban Projects Office of the City Council of Barcelona from its foundation in 1981 and until the year 2000, where she carried out the urban transformation of the area around the Port of Barcelona, the Barceloneta seaside promenade (winner of the FAD Award in 1996) and the covering of the Ronda del Mig in Barcelona (winner of the Decade Award for the year 2006). During this period, she also designed urban furniture for the city of Barcelona. She combined her professional activity with academic work, giving classes in various architecture, agricultural engineering and design schools in Spain and abroad. She was a judge on various panels, such as the City of Barcelona Award, FAD Awards, etc. In 1991, Julià and Olga became associated professionally and founded the Espinàs i Tarrasó studio, SCP. The studio executed a wide range of projects in the areas of Landscaping, Design and Architecture based on the previous experience of its partners, using the resources of the studio itself or in collaboration with other multi-disciplinary teams. Joaquim Tarrasó, a regular collaborator with the firm since 2000, became a partner in 2011, opening the field of activity in the Scandinavian Countries.In their projects, the main goal was to adapt the architectural proposal to the landscape and context. Julià Espinàs’ training as a designer and Olga Tarrasó’s experience as a landscape designer and architect led them to design multi-disciplinary projects together, which included the territory’s town planning and strategy, urban furniture, signage and lighting. In 2018, they received the ADI-FAD Delta de Plata Award for the RAI bench produced by URBIDERMIS, and they were finalists in the FAD Awards for the Badalona Seaside Promenade. In 2006, they received the City of Badalona Award for outdoor spaces for the Badalona Seafront. In 2000, they received the Decade Award for the large Mig-Rambla Brasil roundabout project in Barcelona. In 1996, they received the FAD Award for the Barceloneta Seaside Promenade and in 1993 they were finalists in the 3rd Biennial for Spanish Architecture exhibition for Passeig Joan de Borbó, Pla de Palau and Pla de Correus in Barcelona, amongst others. In the year 1990 Olga Tarrasó designed the NU bench together with Jordi Henrich (selected for the 1991 ADI-FAD Delta awards), an element that stands out thanks to its robust and at the same time austere seat, and due to its range of distributions to bring order to public spaces.

A bench with a classic design

A classic of new urbanism, solid and bare, the Nu bench allows for different compositions, in a line or by itself, organizing the urban space in a very civic manner. Carefully proportioned to maintain an equidistant separation between the supports on the pavement when in a line.

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.

2,46 m with short wooden backrest: 92
2,46 m with long wooden backrest: 104
3,70 m with metal backrest: 148
3,70 m with wooden backrest: 146
Armrest with backrest: 4

*Approximate weight without packaging (kg)

The bench without backrest is useful to create areas of shorter rest. Designed for subtle integration into the landscape, it provides an essential function for the slow-moving green urban space.

2,46 m without backrest: 77
3,70 m without backrest: 117
Armrest without backrest: 3

*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.
