3D puzzle of superlatives in Uppsala
In the heart of the city Uppsala a pedestrian zone and the central square "Forumtorget" invite you to stroll and linger. Since the spring of 2018, extraordinary seating furniture enriches the cityscape.
The bench is extraordinary because of its dimension. More than 7,000 slats of glass and quartz material combine to form an impressive complete work of art with a total length of 65 meters. Approximately 1,100 square metres of Technistone quartz material in the special colour light grey were used to create the bench. The parts were then cut using water-jet machining to the precise specifications of Rosskopf + Partner.
