First prize won for the contest “Benches for Europe” organized by the city of Strasbourg (France) and sponsored by the French Ministry of Culture – DRAC Alsace, the Région Alsace and by the European Union.
The purpose was to create and produce a unique bench for each country of the European Union. I developed a bench for Spain. The 28 design pieces are installed outdoor close to the European Institutions, in front of the Parliament.
This bench has been manufactured by “Sineu Graff”, a local Company specializing in urban furniture.
Inspired by mediterranean culture strongly rooted in Spain, and by mobility which is a deep principle of Europe, this bench offers to the user a relaxing space where he can arrange the seating according to its desire to sit alone, lying down or being in group.
