Life’s a Bench, of Concrete

August 30, 2011 by

Block is an outdoor modular seating system consisting of a concrete base and two laser cut steel modules available in any color or in plain Corten steel.

Designed by architects Marco Lana and Alberto Savettiere of the Italian firm Lana + Savettiere, Block may be positioned in a variety of configurations to become a combination of planter, table, and seating, becoming creative group seating for public spaces.

Block was selected at the international competition, SUN.LAB For a Creative Outdoor 2011, and will be debuted October 20-22, 2011 at SUN, the international outdoor exhibition in Rimini, Italy. SUN.LAB is a free space for research and experimentation organized by SUN to bring to the surface new ideas, innovative design skills, and new ways of designing for outdoor living.

The freshest innovative and eco-friendly designs, trends, and ideas for urban gardens and stylish small places.
