Sierra (.015) outdoor collection: Flat Benches


lovely open design

“Sierra enters in the urban and natural landscape in a quiet way; the idea is something silent,
but at the same time the small details, like the tubes of the legs, makes Sierra unique.”
—Natalia Rota Nodari, designer

Respect for the environment in which it is installed and a highly practical and comfortable design are just some of the benefits of the Sierra (.015) flat straight & curved benches. Each is constructed from 13 tubes which are bent to rest it on the ground, adding an air of extreme lightness and apparent simplicity to this bench. Highly linear, yet sophisticated. Their bent pipe structure with a diameter of 18mm is made of stainless steel or polyester powder coated steel tube and hot-dip galvanized steel. Ready-equipped for fastening to the ground with bolts or joined together using steel plates.

designed by Alberto Basaglia and Natalia Rota Nodari

Alberto Basaglia and Natalia Rota Nodari met while studying at the Politecnico of Milan where they both graduated in architecture.  Shortly after, they founded their studio, BASAGLIA ROTA NODARI.  They completed their first design project in 1999 – the Antennati collection of side tables, clothing racks and more – winning first prize in the Young & Design competition.  This was a powerful sign of much more to come.  Since then, the duo has gone on to win numerous awards and recognition in architecture, design, interior space, food and town planning projects.

These Italian designers aim to transcend the typical image of the Italian designer. The pair achieve this by capturing beauty in equal measure with the technical aspects of their creations. Their visions manifest into award-winning, lovely furniture that captivates and stands the test of time.

“Seizing the specific energies of the person we are communicating with and finding the way to enhance them through the creation of alternative visions, often complementary to that which is already exists.” This is what the duo said about themselves in 2013, during the opening of “Alternative Synergies”.
