People like to sit on walls and outdoor stairs. However, their surfaces are often dirty and cold. Il Posto sprang from the idea of creating a product that offers a low-maintenance, comfortable seating area. The design evokes associations with a blanket that is placed over a wall. Sheets of HPL are used for Il Posto. HPL stands for High Pressure Laminate, a material that is made of 70% cellulose and 30% melamine resins. It is extremely weather-resistant and UV-stable. The seats have an exterior radius of 38 mm and they are bent at a 90° angle. Thus the horizontal area transitions to the vertical area with a gentle sweep. This means that sharp and ugly wall edges are covered. HPL is resistant to most solvents, which means that graffiti can be removed easily. There are five colours to choose from. An underframe of stainless steel allows easy mounting on the substructure. For the side parts, we use stainless steel 1.4571. The shaped tubes, which connect the sheet material to the side parts, are made of stainless steel 1.4301. All elements can be replaced individually in case of damage due to vandalism.
