Sculptural bench in terrazzo concrete
Integral child center De Entrée, Zoetermeer
In the schoolyard
A place for meeting, playing and relaxing
The Flower bench (Bloembank) is a sculptural bench for a primary school that offers a seat and a place for meeting, playing and relaxing.
The work consists of 5 geometrically constructed elements of white terrazzo concrete in the shape of a petal. The idea of a flower is enhanced by the polished finish of the horizontal parts in colored natural stone, whereby shape and decoration reinforce each other.
Green aventurine has been used in the seating area, a gemstone that is very suitable for children and has a beneficial, calming effect. The closed shape of the Flower bench evokes the idea of being included in an embrace, and thus gives a feeling of wellbeing and security.
