Étoile is a modular bench system set within a triangular section which, in turn, is inside a hexagon. It expands on public space in a star-like arrangement and admits multiple configurations, from individual, to a group of different pieces that form a constellation. Its organic aggregation, based on the three system modules, is interpreted in two ways; as a marker and as a link.

It was originally designed for the gardens on each side of the “Serpentin” avenue that runs amidst the buildings of the Quartier Courtillières in Pantin, Seine-Saint-Denis. A well-known housing development, built by the architect Emile Aillaud in the 1950s. 

Étoile is an omni-directional modular system made up of three pieces. A central piece, “A”, with a hexagonal shape, to which the straight modules B1 and B2 are attached, on the five sides of the hexagon. 

Made from moulded reinforced concrete with a gentle etched finish and in the Escofet standard chart colours. May be supplied in other colours on request. The three modules have lower recesses for slings and threaded anchorages for installation with M16 x 140 mm screws driven into holes and fixed in place with resin.
