The Cortina d'Ampezzo Tourist Information Center located in the hearth of the Italian Alps commissioned environmental designer Élodie Stephan to design a bench dedicated to the landscape.

Cimes is a prototype bench built out of wood and metal, a micro-landscape evoking the spectacular Dolomite Mountains. The wooden plain, pierced through by the pyramidal shapes aims to offer free postures to the user. Both materials and concept reflect the physical confrontation of the elements, such as the force nature exerts over the landscape.
