Alpine

Designed and produced at Escofet 1886 in Barcelona, 2019

Winner of Catalonia Ecodesign Award 2019
Organised biannually by the “Department of Territory and Sustainability” and the “Catalan Waste Agency”
Jury veredict: “The product combines a practical, timeless and attractive design, using recycled, certified materials that give it strength, resistance and warmth. It has been designed so that the different parts can be easily repairs or replaced, thus extending the working life of the product.”





The Alpine collection consists of a simple, versatile, combinable system formed by a bench and backless bench that makes it possible to form straight-line aggregations with two modules of lengths: 1,75 m and 2,40 m. The complementary nature of the concrete supports with the wooden seat and back allow it to be adapted to any scenario, thus enhancing personal interaction and diversity in use.


The symbiosis between the solid, resistant, stone supports and the warmth of the timber evokes an indeterminate spot in the Alps, from whence its name is derived, transmitting comfort, peace and relaxation.
