Cast stone and wood are combined in Equal, an element with a linear geometry and ample space for sitting and sharing that emerges from its proportion and balance.
Balance in its volumes, which form a seat that shapes the base and emerges as a backrest.
Balance between its inclined and orthogonal planes, creating a simple yet surprising geometry.
Balance between two materials that merge to heighten their contrast: the coldness of cast stone and the warmth of wood.
Finally, balance between its potential use as a seat with and without a backrest.
The nearly 3 metre length of this product provides a comfortable, attractive surface for sitting, while its weight allows for unanchored installation. Equal was designed in 2009 by architect Joseph Gascón in conjunction with Escofet.
