Three seats inspired by simple solid geometric shapes, realized in the three typical shades of colours, expression of the character of local stone (pietra leccese), and manufactured using the technique of turning. Their formal profile differs for light changes of direction in the design of the section, thus obtaining a kind of complementarity and a defined sculptural aura. Mel, Gas, and Bal due to their monolithic aspect may also lend itself to the function of bollards.
