The set of table, desk and stools of the ODOS series, inspired by school classrooms and home dining rooms, is designed to work as a meeting point. The furniture, which is made of slim concrete, has soft and flexible lines, so when placed outdoors looks natural as well as elegant.
The ODOS range of products designed for public space and landscapes is ideal for anyone wishing to have a meal, a conversation or even to work.
Slimconcrete is a technological evolution of UHPC concrete that uses a combination of superior properties that make it possible to design and manufacture fine, complex shapes, in personalised textures and curves. ESCOFET's specially refined mixture results in a concrete with three times greater compressive, flexural and impact strength than conventional concrete.
The judges said:
'An appealing use of a new material to produce complex shapes, maximising fresh possibilities. It is practical and accessible with great design values and resistant to weather and sunlight.'
