Rubro is composed of two aligned horizontal boards, each one with 10 cm thick, 90cm wide and 12m long. These slabs are supported by four parallelepipeds with 30cm height each one. These horizontal surfaces act as major bases that fold to support human needs, whether the body – sit, recline, lie – or mind ones – rest, reflect, interact. The pieces are heavy and monolithic, and the roughness and color of their material – raw concrete with red pigmentation – contrast with the smooth and white surrounding buildings.
