Design LARS VEJEN
With the SOLID Bench, we have combined the rustic, raw look of a well ring in cement with innovative new urban space design.
This gives the outdoor space a whole new look that is bound to attract attention. Just like with the design of the SOLID Bench: SOLID was Red Dot Design Award Winner in 2009. Lars Vejen was behind the award-winning, simple and extremely elegant design of this bench from HITSA for the outdoor setting.
The SOLID Bench is an extremely elegant bench for urban spaces. And the elegance is achieved not least of all through the use of very few components.
Even the socle itself is made of hot-dip galvanised steel, which fits in well and looks good in an urban area. The seat is made of oil-treated, FSC®-certified mahogany, which gives the bench its attractive appearance. The warm wood also makes the seating experience more comfortable for the user.
To emphasise the idea of nature in the SOLID Bench, you could place your bench near a planted tree. The SOLID Bench is available with or without spaces for planting.
When the SOLID Bench is placed in a bustling urban space, it is not inconceivable that the lovely clean surface of the socle could tempt someone to add their own embellishments to the furniture. Such as graffiti.
We’ve also thought of that.
No matter whether you choose the hot-dip galvanised surface, or have had your SOLID Bench supplied in a powder-coated colour of your own choice, you can purchase an All Remove surface treatment. All Remove is a Danish solution that protects your SOLID Bench, so that any graffiti that is sprayed on it is easy to remove again.
Prize-winning design was not the only criterion when the shape of the SOLID Bench was conceived. At HITSA, we believe that good design goes hand in hand with the choice of materials. And that is equally true here.
The SOLID Bench features a solid socle made out of 10 mm hot-dip galvanised steel. If you wish, you can choose to have the socle powder-coated in a RAL colour of your choice. If you choose powder coating, the steel plate is hot-dip galvanised before being coated.
Hot-dip galvanising helps to ensure that the SOLID socle remains hard-wearing even if the coating does get damaged.
