Eternity (Urban Bench) by George Drakakis
2013 - 2014, Golden A' Street Furniture Design Award Winner
Inspiration
I tried to deconstruct the perception of "urban bench", in respect to the existing infra-structures of the city. thus, "just drop & forget" installation method was introduced. Personally, i don't like the disturbance of works in progress in public spaces.
Creativity
Robust design, easy on site installation, just drop & forget.
Design Challenges
The creative challenge was to redefine the common perception of the "urban bench" object, in respect to the existing infra-structure of the urban environment.
Production Technology
Reinforced cast stone, using specific mold made of polyester reinforced with glass fiber and metallic chassis that ensures the geometrical stability of the workpiece during the manufacturing process. Concrete reinforcing with galvanized steel B-500s in a minimum amount of 30kg/m3. Finished surface is softly acid etched treated and waterproofed.
