POP UP STREET FURNITURE IN THE NETHERLANDS

by Miryam Muller in , ,


Carmela Bogman and Rogier Martens of The Netherlands have come up with a new interactive street furniture design.

By utilizing a hydraulic system, the Pop-Up’s can be pumped out of the pavement by the inhabitants. After use it can be sunk back and it will disappear into the pavement. There are three retractable pieces that come up to function as a lounge area, eating spot or meeting place, or just lower them all down to be flush with the cement to keep the flow of traffic moving.

In Lombok, a district of Utrecht, the Netherlands, the first pop-up lounge already has been placed and after this initial testing phase, the concept might be introduced into several other communities .
