Vestre STRIPES is named for the gap between the continuous slats and is intended to be a kind of floating divan in the urban environment, anchored by a tree if wished. Putting circles, semicircles and rectangular shapes together creates a distinctive landscape in the middle of a busy urban setting.
The starting point for STRIPES was the idea of creating large, solid seats in the urban environment, a bit like ottomans or rafts. The range has turned into a modular system consisting of two primary modules, a rectangle and a semicircle, which can be combined to create benches in all different shapes and sizes.
The modules are also available with a hole for positioning around trees. They can be used on their own too, in which case the sides are enclosed. The name STRIPES comes from the gap between the slats in the seat, which continue down the steel frame. Deliberate use is made of the rhythm of the stripes when joining several modules to create the illusion of one large bench.
STRIPES modules can be positioned singly or joined together and, where relevant, integrated with an existing or new tree, acting as a tree guard. The modules have free-standing feet, so they are raised off the ground slightly.The steel details are hot-dip galvanised (901) and designed for long-term use. Choose from nearly 200 different RAL colours for powder coating (900). All screws and fittings are supplied in acid-resistant or stainless steel.
The standard wooden details are Linax™ Royal pressure-treated Scandinavian pine (non-pigmented or brown). Other types of wood, such as Accoya® eco-timber, are available on request. Oiled oak is recommended indoors.
