PresentationCOMFORT IN EVERY PERSPECTIVE
Observe and reflect. Stretch and rest. Strengthen and self-overcome. Tempo represents a concept of urban integration that reinterprets the functionality of traditional banks through an elementary volume of straight lines. Creates a new generation of high capacity multiplatform bank designed by architect Garitaonaindia de Verá in collaboration with SETGA, where each citizen chooses their best position for use and enjoyment of public space.
TEMPO is an asymmetric bench with a total length of 4250mm. Its design is based on pure lines that cover all three-dimensional space. It stands out for its asymmetry starring a large laterally displaced backrest and its uneven and opposed supports. In addition, the large tubular armrest that divides the seat breaks with its linear continuity.
One of the highlights of this bank is the great versatility of use that allows the user. The lack of backrest on one of its sides prevents it from having a fixed position, allowing access to sit from any angle. On the other hand, its ergonomic design allows the user to use the seat-free backrest as a support point for a raised position.
TEMPO combines the strength and integrity of corten steel with the presence and robustness of wood. The main structure composed of the supports and the backrest are made of corten steel. This type of steel is achieved through a controlled process of activation and chemical neutralization of the oxide.
The wood chosen for the slats that form the seat and backrest is the tropical wood of Iroko. This is applied with a lasur varnish that consists of providing it with a double waterproofing protection that allows it to protect and preserve its properties.
The tubular armrest is made of AISI304 stainless steel with a polished finish. This type of steel stands out for its optimal behavior against corrosion, which makes it an ideal material for an aggressive urban environment.
The materials selected and the protections applied guarantee the permanence in time of this bank.
Here are the basic dimensions of the Tempo serie:
