Simply designed and comfortable to use, Alberto Meda’s prototype for the ULI competition “A Bench for Milan”, is the result of a choice to retain a design typology familiar to the Milanese urban landscape and reinterpret it using new materials and contemporary technology.

The smooth, continuous sitting area is obtained using differentiated slat widths in Iroko wood which is weather-resistant and has the right heat for body contact, whatever the season. The legs are made from two aluminium valves, which use die-cast technology to integrate the various functions and reduce the number of parts.

The result is a unified shape, using materials with physical properties close to those that occur in nature. A light product with the power of Alias’ experience in manufacturing outdoor furniture, which brings a domestic quality to the city, inviting your to sit down, like its name.
