Presentation / packagingFin
Travelers often meet up at junctions to share ideas, Luca Nichetto’s incredibly versatile Interchange for Sancal helps people do just that. The bench base is inspired by the architectural forms of Turati station’s lattice ceiling. A highly adaptable furniture solution, it combines geometry, materials, and functions. The versatility of the bench means that it is ideal for both domestic spaces or contract projects.
The solid ash wood lattice is available in two sizes and serves as a support for a range of configurations. Different elements can be fixed through the holes with a simple fastening system. This way, the bench can incorporate comfortable seats, tables with different shapes and finishes, or dividing panels. The tables can be fitted to the outer edge of the bench or poke out slightly. The seats must always be placed entirely with the perimeter of the lattice.
|Bench||Eight stain colors|
|Ash tables||Nineteen stain colors|
|MDF tables||Four high gloss lacquer colors|
|Seat cushions||Fabric, vinyl and leather options|
|Legs||Steel in a textured black epoxy finish|
