Banc galet Benjamin Rousse

Indoor/outdoor pebble bench 2 possible sizes.

A veritable island in the city, this concrete monolith invites passers-by to settle in and appropriate this element of street furniture. Its larch wood mast is equipped with LEDs and evokes the shape of a tree on which you can hang your clothes, a new way of interacting with the structure.

 

The pebble bench is a space of rest, an escape through sober shapes. In its opening, comes an object to discover and exchange... The wooden pole, on the side, is ideal for hanging clothes, fixing a photovoltaic panel to collect light during the day and diffuse it at night and can finally be modulated into a signage branch for information purposes.

 

This bench invites people to exchange, to share books that we have appreciated, as well as to make people aware of energy saving.

I wanted to go a little further than the simple urban bench, by creating a space of reverie and poetry in the city.

 

The pebble bench will findits place as much among individuals (living room, building hall, business, bathroom, etc.),than in the urban landscape.(street/square, golf course, rest area...)

For reasons of vandalism, the seat is made of Ductal concrete, and the light source is integrated directly into a metal mast.

Audience award for its Galet bench at LYON CITY DESIGNat the Grand Hotel Dieu in Lyon 2013.
