Satellite embodies a border concept between a landscaping element and an urban furnishing, which makes the most of the capacities of UHPC concrete to create a seat platform that is used as an individual or shared lounger. Its formal design, in a contemporary style and with rounded lines, generates a skin wrap that is transformed into a sophisticated, ergonomic back.

Satellite is a pioneering concept in its field, and was created within the context of Escofet’s invitation to creators to tender their works to celebrate the company’s 125th anniversary.  With a hybrid and intelligent character, Satellite is an element that creates meaningful places, exemplifying the importance of creating an emotional bond between product and user, and fostering the process of interaction among its users. 

The design proposes a new way to use and occupy urban space, replacing the rigid linear, traditional arrangements with more flexible alternatives that facilitate spontaneous, gregarious relations in varied contexts, such as parks, seafronts and viewpoints.

Single block of UHPC-Slimconcrete reinforced with stainless steel. Etched finish and colour in accordance with the standard Escofet colour chart. Free-standing, with a low centre of gravity, with no need for anchors. The passage for slings created at the base makes it easy to handle in loading, unloading and installation operations.
