A natural resource, the Azorean black stones give a sharp outline and unique identity to the landscape of the islands. A public project managed by the Azorean region simultaneously serves the local community and visitors while highlighting the beauty of local materials and savoir-faire.
Inspired by exquisite details of the island's architectural and historical constructions, the public furniture pieces pay homage to the local culture in its original environment.
