Come and meet Raw Edges, the designers of our smooth, white concrete armchairs designed for play, leaning and relaxing at Peninsula Square. Have a drink and enjoy Pepa Ubera’s celebration of the seating with a new performance during the evening.

Raw Edges on ‘Steps’

“When walking in the nature we can take a break comfortably and sit on a rock or a log, a cut tree trunk or simply on a grassy mound. In the city as well, we can find relaxing spots that were not designed to become seats like stairs, pavements’ edge or low brick walls. We looked into this behaviour; this hunter’s eye that looks for the ideal resting position, like a student during a lunch break, a group of builders having coffee on site or bunch of pupils sitting on the pavement, and came up with this small urban landscape that is made from a clutter of concrete units. Each unit is like a scaled up domestic armchair, and when arranged together with their different heights, ‘these armchairs’ create an urban texture that invites people to step on, and relax.”
