Nantes

Escofet Logo

Escofet street furniture utilises design to transform cities and promote the use of public space, with ranges that address simple, practical needs, through to stunning pieces that move beyond function and into sculptural centrepieces.

The Nantes chair model was designed based on a contemporary interpretation of furniture archetypes and the structural and formal possibilities of Escofet’s UHPC-Slimconcrete. A tensioned membrane, resolved with the lowest possible thickness and inserted into an independent, self-stabilising metal structure.

Inspired by the design of mass-produced, low-cost seats with metal structures and a tensioned fabric, we associated the characteristics of the behaviour of this material and the shapes it generates with the possibilities offered by UHPC-Slimconcrete in the site furnishings field.

The Nantes chair is reminiscent of mass-produced textile furniture. Fabrics hung on lightweight metal structures, sometimes folded, with the structure and membrane being completely independent. The lightweight nature of the UHPC-Slimconcrete products makes them easy to transport and reduces energy consumption in their fabrication. Their 100% recyclable material composition optimises their life cycle.

The bench is made from a single piece of UHPC-Slimconcrete. Solid machined, folded stainless steel profile structure. The Nantes chair is installed on the paving, anchored with threaded rods fastened with resin. In the case of a detachable installation, the anchorage is executed with through bolts and expansion plugs.

Colour-waterproofed UHPC Concrete Stainless steel AISI 316L.
