Serp is a modular backless bench system formed by five models with different radii, which can be added to others to form long zigzag bench arrangements, with and without LED lighting. Its rounded ends permit the installation of continuity modules, with no specific requirements in terms of precision. In the Serp Confort version, the modules have a recessed tropical wood seat.
The Serp Confort modular backless bench was first used in the elevated square of the Diagonal Mar shopping mall in Barcelona, where the LED lighting was first incorporated into the standard grooves provided for that purpose.
Different aggregations to the Serp modular backless bench system permit the creation of straight or undulated continuous backless benches. It can also be used to retain earth and form a boundary between areas with plants and areas frequented by pedestrians.
The modules, with a square cross section of 50 x 50 cm and gently rounded edges, are made from dry mix concrete with an etched and water-repellent finish, in the Escofet standard chart colours. Due to its heavy weight, it rests subtly on the ground or paving, with no need for anchors. Each module has two supporting legs of 2 cm that permit the passage of transportation slings to lift it from the ground, thus facilitating rainwater drainage.
