VACANTE Internal Benches
Designer: E Miralles
Vacante by E Miralles has been developed as a multifunctional bench for public areas, both indoors and outdoors. The structure simply consists of two horizontal tubes fixed to vertical supports and permitting to be linked to another, giving a look and a function of continuity.
The seat comprises a moulded plywood shell resting on the horizintal tubes. Vacante has been continiously adapted to the different suggestions and demands from the market: sidetables, back-to-back, wall mounted, freestanding (avoiding fixing to the floor), with wooden or metal shells. There are two different types: Vacante 1, with an almost straight seat/back angle, for "short time waiting" areas, and Vacante RX, with a deeper seat, more inclinated seat/back angle for "lounge areas".
