SAS-TRIA, a dance between concrete and the landscape
The architecture profession requires a multifaceted character, where ideas are placed as much in the integral design as in the installation of what was sketched. As projects progress, details are refined, seeking to optimize resources, and learning, in cases like this, to design in singular and apply in plural.
When the idea of working together with the architectural studio GARCÍA-DURÁN & EQUIP was given, the thought fascinated the Sas family. Collaborating first hand in the design, letting be guided by the experience of architects and artists, is not uncommon for the company, but this case was special.
The SAS-TRIA gets its inspiration from the triangle of the Polish mathematician Waclaw Sierpinski, where the beauty of triangular geometry is fundamental. Sierpinski marked the design from the beginning, making the team aim to design versatile triangular pieces. And that’s where the TRIA-1, TRIA-2 and TRIA-3 came from.
The range of products uses fractal geometry to learn from nature, allowing it to influence the whole process. From the beginning, various ideas, angles and possibilities were handled. In all of them, the placement of the pieces played an important role, determining whether or not the space could be utilized. The versatility of the SAS-TRIA makes it a piece capable of ordering or letting go; limit, or blur; be a whole or the detail that brings everything together.
It is not surprising that this range is the favourite of architects and landscapers alike, and of all those who seek to personalize spaces and play with the tones that nature offers.
The combination of the three pieces allows the creation of very decorative compositions, either randomly or with a predetermined design, which can also be used both horizontally and vertically. With the SAS-TRIA you can generate continuous blocks, propose gaps or mark areas where you can see the green of the garden. The fractal design of the three pieces allows endless options!
For more inspiration on the versatility of the SAS-TRIA, here are some of the most frequent uses:
Pavement if you plan to use it as pavement, it will be very beneficial to take advantage of its rugged, highly resistant and non-slip texture. The three pieces are suitable for pedestrian traffic and light traffic. Also, when using as pavement and mixing the different pieces it is possible to let the grass grow through the different empty parts of the piece and create totally personalized and unique combinations. The visual game obtained is ideal for those who seek to bring green to areas where cement is usually used.
