Modular and adaptable in construction, the Ribbon Bench is a new product in the Typology Collection of outdoor seating and lighting designed to connect spaces and guide pedestrians. Featuring three lighting models, the customizable Ribbon Bench offers durability, longevity and low maintenance. The bench’s ultra-high performance concrete (UHPC) components allow for a thinner cross section with higher abrasion resistance, lower permeability, exceptional strength and high resistance to compression, bending, impact and wear. The optional integral downward-facing lighting offers low-glare illumination to create an illusion that the entire structure almost levitates.
Judge’s Comment: “The implementation of UHPC in such an eye-catching profile should be commended.”
