616 series: outdoor sitting system

616 series benches drawing a "go green :-)" txt in the nature

We are working on a  landscape project for which we needed a family of benches that could be connected to each other to form straight and curvy lines. Surprising… We couldn’t find in the market products suitable to our needs (and we were very happy to enjoy designing new benches!).

So we developed a sitting system composed by 6 components (4 straights, 2 curved) that can be attached to create long straight or curvy lines, and even gigantic “sitting fonts” to create landscape text to sit on. We temporarily called it 616 series (from the date in which they have been designed).

We like the idea that we can create clusters of benches with a continuous design, that can be used to seat close to each other like in an enormous outdoor living room.

616 series  is composed by 6 different sitting components:

– straight l=1m
– straight l=1m with back
– straight l=2m
– straight l=3m
– curved r=2m
– curved r=4m

With those simple components, it’s possible to design in the landscape almost every 2d drawing  (including fonts to write txt).

P.S. this is a concept design, it’s a project in a development stage, more info soon.
