‘Micro-installation’ aims to recover forgotten spaces of the city.
Have you ever gone for a walk in the city and been dumbfounded by all the deserted areas? If so, you’re not alone.
Polish artists Magda Szwajcowska and Michal Majewski, who founded the Wroclaw-based No Studio, were so stunned to see that more people weren’t enjoying outdoor spaces, so they decided to develop an invention which improves the comfort of sitting and sunbathing in neglected urban locations.
DesignBoom relays that they chose unused concrete stairs that lead to the river as their target for their project and transformed it into a colorful lounge.
The minimalistic blue-colored half-chairs/half-sunbeds were installed for the Lower Silesian Festival of Architecture (DoFA). And, it seems the public liked them! People were caught sunbathing on the chairs and enjoying the beautiful setting near the historic bridge.
The unique invention may help bring life back to neglected urban spaces in other cities. Following are some photos of the micro-installation:
