Y-bench for Corus
Wijk aan Zee, 20 May 2009
Tuttobene was given the honour to make a design for Corus
with a new type of steel Y-magine. The Y-bench is the result. Wednesday 20 May the bench was placced in the sculpture park Een Zee van Staal
(a see of steel
) accompanied by Queen Beatrix.
It was the second time in a year that Victor le Noble and David Heldt met Queen Beatrix and Mr Theo J. Henrar, Managing Director of Corus. Last year (30 September) Tuttobene presented the prototype of Y-magine at the opening of Corus' new Cold Roller 22
The outdoor bench is made in the form of an Y, as the new material is called Ymagine
. The slim design emphasizes the stronger properties of this material compared to conventional types of steel.
Tuttobene was approached because this material is a much more environmentally friendly choice than conventional types of steel. The production process consumes less energy; and it is stronger, which allows to use less material than was possible before.
