Starfish is a revamp of the Flor backless bench, in a new material. Unlike its concrete predecessor, which includes two combinable formats, the new plastic version has a single model whose biomorphic, radial design allows for flexible, grouped or individual use. This version is highlighted due to its lightness -weighing only 56 kg- and the possibility of incorporating a white LED lighting kit.
The review of the Flor bench concept by Emilio Tuñón in order to create Starfish is based on a star-shaped structure with five arms that rest on five short legs at their ends.
t is monomaterial and recyclable. The option in black color is 100% recycled, and consequently it is an environmentally sustainable product. The peculiarity of non-porous HDPE material means that its surface is easy to wash with pressurised water and a degreasing detergent that contains surfactants. It is disinfected with a hydro-alcoholic solution.
Made with rotomolded HDPE polyethylene, it’s available in a wide variety of colors. With a threaded inspection chamber cover permitting access to the interior. Can be installed on the paving, and anchored, if required, using two optional stainless steel trim systems: fixed and invisible, or exposed and detachable.
