Brisa is a contemporary bench designed to enhance the material and structural possibilities of the UHPC-Slimconcrete. The perforated seat brings a lightweight quality to the volume, improving its usability features, such as ventilation to mitigate high temperatures in warm sites or the rapid elimination and drying of water in wet weather conditions.
Its elegant appearance, a perforated bench with a minimalist design and discreet elegance, is inspired by the holes found in eroded marine rocks by the combination of the effect of the sea and the wind.
The UHPC-Slimconcrete technology allows for the design of extremely durable, lightweight elements with a minimum structural cross-section, due to their high resistance to compression, bending, impact and wear. The extremely low water absorption properties of this material improve its behaviour in the face of fragmentation due to freeze cycles in places with harsh climates.
Its neutral, abstract design (an evolution of the Prima collection) allows for its installation in any setting, either alone or aligned with other elements. The geometrical compatibility of the Brisa and Prima models means that both can be combined to form flexible alignments.
Its lightweight nature makes it easy to transport and reduces energy consumption in fabrication. The 100% recyclable material composition optimises its life cycle. Made from a single piece of UHPC-Slimconcrete reinforced with stainless steel and with an acid-etched waterproofed or soft polished finish, in accordance with the standard Escofet colour chart. Easy to lift and handle with slings or a forklift truck and can be anchored to the paving.
