Landscape Forms Introduces TWIG

  Subscribe to FREE newsletter  Jun 18, 2014

Landscape Forms proudly announces the introduction of TWIG, a system of modular cast stone benches from the Escofet Collection, designed by architect Alexander Lotersztain. The designer is Director of Australia-based Derlot Ltd., a multidisciplinary design practice known for award winning work in products, interiors, furniture, hotels, branding and public projects. Landscape Forms VP of Design and Marketing, Kirt Martin, states, “We are excited to add TWIG by the talented international designer Alexander Lotersztain to our offering of Escofet products in North America. It is a beautiful seating system with forms that reference nature and offer unique opportunities for designing and organizing outdoor space."

TWIG grows organically like tree branches. It has no conventional back or front, allowing 360° use. The basic TWIG module has three asymmetric arms with edges that share a common geometry, so modules can be added and “branched” in virtually limitless patterns. Based on close observation of how people interact in outdoor spaces, it supports a range of social activity, from two people in conversation to the gathering of larger groups. Configurations can meander around tree trunks under canopy shade and can be used to create garden edging and low walls. TWIG is heavy weight, so it can be installed without anchorage, and its subtly rounded edges and gently acid-etched surfaces invite passers-by to take a seat.
