Product description

The BILBAO planter has a pyramid shape with a triangular base and gently arched sides. This reinforced cast stone item can be supplied in four different colours: white, grey, black and beige. The formal result is produced by a 16º torsion of the upper plane from the base, resulting in a volume with slightly warped sides. This planter´s image changes with the viewer´s position, entering a visual relationship with the observer. When these planters are rotated in their alignments, they create a sequence of apparently dissimilar elements. The BILBAO planter and the BILBAO bench are reinforced cast stone elements in the BILBAO Series, designed for Escofet in 2008 by architect Josep Muxart. The spirit of this series is based on the desire to transmit an organic aspect with a soft appearance to the rigid nature of the material by means of a continuous composition of curved forms and warped planes. The end results are these startling items with their contained movement, almost at the limit of their normal dimensions. This feature diminishes the impact of their unique presence by relating them to their surroundings in a friendly way.
