The art of welding

Avant-garde urban design

Ever since the work of the great architect Antoni Gaudí, if not even before then, Barcelona has been regarded as a centre of imaginative urban design. Escofet has a strong sense of obligation to continue this creative tradition. The company produces street furniture in the Catalan capital, combining materials such as architectural concrete, aluminium, stainless steel, wood, glass and plastic to create a unique blend of avant-garde industrial design and contemporary architecture. The steel structures and the moulds of the concrete components used are welded with Ferroline mixtures from Messer. Escofet has also been involved in the completion of Gaudí’s masterpiece, the Sagrada Família church, since 1996. State-of-the-art moulding technology is being used here to create structures that would not be possible with traditional construction methods.
