ALFA: An Outdoor Bench Shaped Like a Cotter Pin

Verónica Martínez designed the ALFA bench which was presented as part of a KRION® exhibition for the PORCELANOSA Group. Made from solid surface KRION® in Snow White, the bench was inspired by the symbol for infinity and its shape kind of reminds me of a cotter pin. The sleek, durable material lets you use the bench both indoors or out so it’s super practical. It could even be used as a coffee table.


The pointed edge on the open end lets you arrange three ALFAs together so they’re fanned out like a propeller.


The benches were fabricated by 2dSes.
