Product Information
Foster + Partners Industrial Design is launching a two-part outdoor furniture collection with
ESCOFET, a Barcelona-based company that works with urban elements and architectural concrete to transform cities and promote the use of public space. Developed in conversation with the practice’s landscape and urban design teams, TIERS and GATHER offer different levels of ergonomic support and privacy to meet a range of needs. The durable elements are made from ultra-high-performance concrete (UHPC) for a sleek and thin profile.
Mike Holland, Head of Industrial Design, Foster + Partners, says: “We are delighted to be launching our first collection with ESCOFET. With their understated elegance and refined profiles, TIERS and GATHER provide an array of creative options for architects, urban planners, and landscape designers.
The TIERS family is made up of a bench (45 cm), table or perch (74 cm), high table (105 cm) and low stool. These elements can be used individually or arranged alongside one another to create different configurations for socialising, relaxing, or working. The design team worked with 3D printers to genera- te a seamless transition between the leg and seat, while the pillowed edges enhance comfort and allow for drainage.
