Escofet Godot

Design by: díez&díez diseño

GODOT is a reinforced cast stone bench composed of differently sized, overlapping modules. The common denominator in these modules is a semi-circular void at one end. This feature allows modules to be arranged beside each other, leaving a circular gap in each seat.

GODOT is both a bench and a pedestal installed around trees with a composition in which the trees can grow. The tree is highlighted by the embrace of the bench while simultaneously inviting passers-by to come and enjoy the shade and the greenery.

The GODOT bench design emerged from the idea of creating a piece of street furniture to reflect the duality or encounter between two halves in the shade of a tree, like Vladimir and Estragon in Samuel Beckett's Waiting for Godot. Beckett sketches a bare outline of the scene: A country road. A tree. An evening.

díez&díez diseño and Escofet have added a bench to this scene to make the eternal metaphor of the wait more comfortable.
