    Exotic Import: Landscape Forms Represents Escofet in US, Canada

    Ever eager to leverage world-class design to its A&D clients, Landscape Forms just became the exclusive U.S. and Canadian representative of Escofet, the Barcelona, Spain, authority on exterior appointments. Since 1886, the company has collaborated with such bold-face names as artist Joan Miró and architect Jean Nouvel, and its benches, bollards, and fixtures enliven major cities across the globe. 

    The inaugural 14-item package consists of seating, tables, and a planter, all in Escofet’s signature cast stone. Aggressive geometry rules backless flor, an abstracted asterisk shape intended for individual or communal seating, and Milenio, a modular system of straight and angled pieces destined for multiple configurations. Things turn sinuous in Hebi, as curved components create snakelike foot prints of practically any length, and LungoMare, the undulating surface of which references the sea, like its moniker does. More familiar in function is Sillarga, the chair’s ergonomically shaped back echoing its flowing profile, and PrimaMarina, the teak-slatted bench. While no color is added to the stone, it is either acid-etched or polished, then waterproofed to boost durability.
