URBANTIME by Diemmebi Between design and sustainability. Experiencing outdoor moments. Art Direction Basaglia + Rota Nodari Studio
The time we spend in urban public spaces and outdoors deserves the same attention and quality as the time we spend in our homes. URBANTIME was born of this belief; a name that reflects the brand’s mission: to create a collection of furniture designed to make outdoor moments more comfortable. When we wait for the train, when we enjoy an ice cream in the shade of a tree or in a square, when we allow ourselves a minute of recovery before the next training stretch along a cycle path. URBANTIME was born for these and for many other moments, offering a wide range of products: from benches, available in many models, to chairs, to tables and accessories. Elements designed to be not only functional but also durable.
Respecting the very high standards of quality and durability – cornerstones of the company – is made possible thanks to the high industrialization of Diemmebi, which carries out most of the manufacturing in its own production site, obtaining constant and meticulous control.
URBANTIME, with the Art Direction of Basaglia + Rota Nodari Studio, is design that finds inspiration in the beauty of the cities, their culture, and in the evocative Italian landscapes, so that the furniture can become the natural complement to the space that welcomes it.
This without neglecting respect for the environment. Italy has recently adopted an action plan for sustainability that draws inspiration from the guidelines established by the European Commission in 2008. A plan that aims to spread a culture of environmental innovation in the market, to encourage buyers to adopt a sustainable approach, to respond effectively to global challenges.
All the products of the URBANTIME collection fall within the CAM directives, as they are designed from the outset to facilitate their disposal at the end of their life, being made from 100% recyclable materials and not using paints containing substances that are harmful to people and the environment.
Choosing URBANTIME for public projects is not only a conscious choice but also helps to promote a more sustainable production and more virtuous consumption models.
