Trafaria’s Bench is characterized by its comfort given the use of climbing rope as support.
The blue climbing rope provides a high degree of comfort. The rope refers to the roots of this fishing community, the sea and the fishing nets. While building the first benches, Mr. “Capitão”, a resident of Trafaria and a retired fisherman guided the interlacing of the ropes and executed the knots. The construction of the benches also had the participation of more community members and a network of volunteers.
The benches have the possibility of being stored in a shelf designed for this purpose, freeing the space for several activities.
