Product Information
ESCOFET’s long-standing focus on modular urban elements found a perfect partner in Foster + Partners Industrial Design. The final stages of this collaboration involve the making and shipping of the finished product. ESCOFET is renowned worldwide for its manufacturing excellence, offering a range of colours and finishes that are second to none. To make GATHER, we developed bespoke steel and polyester moulds and a lightweight stainless-steel frame. We also tailored the UHPC-Slimconcrete® so it could flow easily through the slender mould gaps and evenly distribute the aggregate across all visible surfaces. After curing and demoulding, all surface bug holes are carefully filled by hand with a concrete mix. The seats are then acid-etched and waterproofed. Finally, both seating and backrest areas are hand polished. Because sustainable shipping is paramount, we also adjusted each module’s length to load easily while fully utilizing internal container and/or lorry space.
