Goutte is a multi-functional moulded concrete boundary marker. It can be installed individually, for use as a seat. It can be installed in lines to delimit spaces for different uses. It can be installed as a group to form flows in tension due to the interaction of some drops with others.
It was originally designed to create small groups of seats in 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.
Made from moulded reinforced concrete with an etched finish and in the Escofet standard chart colours. May be supplied in other colours on request.
It has a sleeve at the top into which an eye bolt can be screwed in order to lift and move it with a sling. It is designed to be anchored to the paving with two threaded M16 x 140 mm screws inserted and fastened with resin in holes with a diameter of 40 mm.
