Antonio Larosa used the high-tech architecture of The Centre Pompidou as the inspiration for the Beam Benches. The stunning building in Paris houses the Musée National d’Art Moderne, which is the largest museum for modern art in Europe. Larosa was always fascinated by this major example of an ‘inside-out’ building in architectural history, with its structural system, mechanical systems, and circulation exposed on the exterior of the building.
The Beam Bench collection was designed and built exclusively for public spaces around cities, public transport, parks, colleges and universities. When painted in bright colors the Beam collection looks like fun public art, guaranteed to make you smile even on a rainy day! Manufactured in North America, the Beam Benches are entirely made of aluminum and powder coated to any RAL color of your choice.
Bike racks are important part of any city landscape and it’s hard to imagine life in a city without bikes. If bike racks are also fun to look at that’s even better! Designed by Larosa Design for Florida-based Benchmark Contract Furniture, Peanut is a family of bike racks made entirely out of aluminum and usable in all kinds of weather. Powder-coated in any standard RAL color. Peanut is fun, stylish, yet very useful!
Happy to announce that the outdoor furniture selected for the main courtyard located on Albuquerque’s College of New Mexico campus consists mainly of the Garda and Loop collections.
The Garda modular seating system and the Loop collection were designed by Antonio Larosa for Florida-based Benchmark Contract Furniture.
Both collections, designed exclusively for public spaces, have structures made of solid aluminum that is powder-coated to specification. Seats for the modular Garda benches for the Albuquerque project were specified using composite wood-look slats.

Created for public spaces, the PAK bench design was inspired by the “Casa del Fascio” in Lissone, Italy. The building (picture below) was designed in 1938 by the master of Rationalist architecture, Giuseppe Terragni. PAK bench is a masterpiece of sustainability. Structure made of solid aluminum, seat made of composite wood slats or man-made stone. Antonio Larosa designed the PAK bench to be completely recyclable! …but seriously, who wants to convert into reusable material such a beauty? Buy PAK and keep it forever!
