Equal is a seating solution with a simple geometry formed by a combination of cast concrete and the warmth of wood, it has great proportion and balance. At almost 3 meters in length there is ample space for sitting and sharing and offers a comfortable, attractive surface.
The balance of the design has truly been captured:
Balance between its use, allowing users to sit on the seat or bench section, with or without the backrest. Balance between the two contrasting materials using a combination of concrete and wood. Balance between its volume, the shape of the base of the seat, emerges as a backrest, creating its mirror image; a reflected duplication that appears almost identical, but is reversed. Balance between its inclined and right angle planes, creating a simple yet surprising geometry.
The weight of the unit allows for unanchored installation and can be free standing.
Equal was designed in 2009 by architect Pepe Gascón in conjunction with Escofet.

Ethical Risk Index
This Radar diagram illustrates the level of ethical risk associated with a specific stone. Ethical risk is plotted against the 10 ten measures of the ERI, with each value drawn from reports produced by independent ethical auditors, engaged by Marshalls to provide non-biased and honest reporting into levels of risk in that supply chain.
Each of the 10 measure is designed to recognise different and discrete sources of ethical risk. This produces a bespoke, fit for purpose framework designed specifically for the requirements of the stone industry. The radar diagram itself also compares the Marshalls supply chain to the wider industry in that stone, giving users a working comparison of Marshalls supply chain to the industry average, in the opinion of the auditor.
