Metalco is an Italy-based street furniture company offering a wide range of products including public benches, planters, racks, metal fencing, and a lot more. Alterego is one of the latest offerings from its Vitaurbana collection centered on modularity. It is a complete set of modular seats, planters, totem poles, and sun screens, which combined can create an appealing and relaxing urban environment anywhere. The inclusion of modern technologies makes it even better for the digital world.
Alterego modular seats are available in exotic/larch wood or High Performance Concrete (HPC) with remaining elements in Corten or powder-coated steel. Attractive and strong at the same time, this modular street furniture unit can comfort people in streets and public spaces. The planters would help to improve environment, whereas the built-in USB port would be useful to charge smartphones.
With smooth surfaces and clean lines of contemporary design, the Alterego modular urban furniture line becomes part of surrounding architecture and other settings of a public space. Nowadays, it has become a trend or we can say a ‘need’ to include plants in public furniture designs as in the Botanical Twist public bench by Alexis Tricoire for TF Urban which also features a nearly same design concept.
