Arobase urban furniture project.
Commissioner : EPA Saint-Etienne.
Manufacturer : Sineu Graff.
Delivery : July 2017.

Arobase furniture enables various urban configurations on the basis of the same simple, basic, modular and colourful model, responding to uses and practices regarding the context and location of the installation.

The comfortable oblong surface of the seat enables users to appropriate it 360┬░,positioning themselves and making use either of the end or the whole depth of the seat. The seat can therefore be used spontaneously like a stool or an urban pillar in an area that is regularly frequented. In contrast userscan chose to stay for longer, more comfortably on the generous seat on which a light bag can also be placed.

The height of the model can be adjusted to meet different ergonomic needs in relation to the uses, behaviours and practices at individual sites.
It can be accessorised to provide a certain level of comfort: a back can be added to the seat ; a light shield, added to the table create anti-reflection screens whilst working outdoors or to provide an element of discretion and privacy in open and well-frequented public spaces ; a USB socket incorporated into the scope of a seat, a shelf or a table, provides a fast and versatile charging point for mobile personal devices and laptops; indirect low consumption LED lighting beneath the seats highlights a pathway and places to rest at times when there is less daylight, notably in the morning, at the end of the afternoon and in the evening.

The simple and robust technical system, formed of basic shapes, enables a range of objects to be developed that respond to various space configurations in situ.
The manufacture of components upon request and their ability to be dismantled into several main pieces, facilitate maintenance, repairs and replacement.
The furniture can be regarded as adaptable and reversible over time.
