OXIGEN is an initiative to promote the improvement of our community values and promote a more respectful relationship with nature, merging nature, art and communication.
The initiative takes the form of a series of interactive elements made of local wood and other resources, intended for green public spaces in both urban-peri-urban environments and protected natural spaces.
We give new life to dead trees to turn them into an aesthetic element in harmony with nature and a meeting point and environmental awareness.

This bench was a Pinus halepensis (Aleppo pine or white pine). It is a tree species of the genus Pinus in the family Pinaceae. It is a native tre from the Mediterranean region.
The Collserola Oxygen Bench project exposes this phenomenon of CO2 absorption in wood.
There are approximately 250.000 of this Pinus in Collserola Park.
It has been cut down to clean and rejuvenate the forest, with a growth of 30 years it produced around 150.000 liters of oxygen and has absorbed 350kg. of CO2.
"Any territory needs art to be rediscovered, to be viewed from different points, to open dialogues around various interesting topics, around society, nature or science."
