The development of the Xunco columns series is the culmination of a timeless aesthetic language inspired by the reeds of the Juncus plant—a new dialogue between urban space and natural world.
ORIGIN AND EVOLUTION
The Juncus lives in moist soil, riverbanks and marshes. The blade is long, straight and flexible, blooming from April to July. The Xunco series defines a lighted riverbank in a public space, and is ideal for parks, roundabouts or squares.
The first units of the Xunco series were positioned on the banks of the River Lérez as it flows through the Spanish city of Pontevedra. Today, the Xunco series is part of the landscape of Central European cities such as Tilburg, in the Netherlands.
MATERIALS AND STRUCTURE
Xunco consists of three independent structures made of Corten or galvanized steel, located at different heights. The Corten steel finish is obtained by allowing the surface layer to rust through controlled activation and a chemical neutralization process.
The accuracy of this process ensures protection against the corrosive action of the environment, equipping the finish with a high level of uniformity.
Here are the basic dimensions of the Xunco:
