Tombolo is a public bench that plays with the domestic typology of daybeds with bolster pillows. As armrests, headrests or just as partitions, the wood cylinders are movable along the bench. Everyone is free to play with it as desired and needed. The bench is built with wood profiles. They are cut at the good length after being painted in order to highlight the repetitive construction logic.
The aim behind shifting an indoor and possessed object to an outdoor and shared object is to blur the private/public boundary. (As an invitation to Abitare la città, as proclaimed by Ugo La Pietra). Tombolo calls the break as a special time. It recommends the lying position as a way to experience the city by the sounds, with eyes turned away from the surrounding activity and materiality.
