Edro (Street Furniture System) by Marco Mascetti
2017 - 2018, Golden A' Street Furniture Design Award Winner
Inspiration
The whole system has been designed with clean and essential surfaces in order to enhance the effect of the tangency between bench and vase. We kept plants as the center and main focus of this system because we wanted people to gather around them and share the beauty an beneficial effect of nature.
Creativity
This street furniture system combines the vase for plants and flowers with the bench, keeping the nature as the center focus. The seat of the benches is obtained with two planes inclined towards the center, where a recessed drainage channel brings rain water into the vase. Starting from this original shape we then designed the whole system. The little recessed step lift the whole element, giving a lighter and willowy look.
Design Challenges
New cities offer and impose new ways of leaving daily life and urban spaces. Therefore we defined a concept of a new system able to merge seamlessly nature and city.
Production Technology
The whole system is made with UHPC, Ultra High Performance Concrete. Wooden seat is optional.
