Tectonic Movement / public furniture

Tectonic Movement
Tectonic Movement

This landscape of calm is based on HI-MACS material. This system of sitting, reclining and communication for the urban area impresses with its simple design and integrated unobtrusively into any cityscape. The sophistication of this urban furniture is the interaction with the environment. Almost provocatively it seems to tell a story of an earlier world, a world under the concrete of a big city. Installed at ground level in the concrete it looks like that form pushes up from the floor to let nature take its space. Under the seat and deck elements plants break through the gray veil of the concrete.
