LINUS | CITY FURNITURE
FINALLY, THE GOAL OF ATMOSPHERIC URBAN DESIGN MUST BE TO OFFER PLACES THE NECESSARY INFRASTRUCTURES WITHOUT TAKE PART OF THEIR FREEDOM OF INDIVIDUAL EXPERIENCE. PUBLIC PLACES MUST ALSO LEAVE SPACE IN THE RIGHT SENSE OF THE WORD.(EDGAR ELLER)
Life in the city demands new quality of stay. Urban structures have an influence on the personal development and development of their residents and users and we react to that. In our LINUS project, we have dealt intensively with spatial structures and usable sculptures in urban space in order to give the place a new identity and the right ambience that invites you to linger. In view of the current situation, quality time in public space is becoming more and more important - such as: a short meeting, a break as a stopover, letting the children balance on the spatial sculptures in the city, being able to make an important professional phone call, or just sitting there and take a break.
LINUS is a modular sculpture that adapts to the urban space - depending on the spatial conditions, different sized or compact situations can be built. The system works like building blocks, which are defined differently by the way they are compiled. It can be used to create table-bench-like sculptures that, nested within each other, create a versatile object in urban space.
LINUS is a combination of pioneering technology, concrete 3D printing and classic joinery craftsmanship. There are almost no limits to the design language and execution. With concrete 3D printing, there are no costly negative molds that are always replicated in the same way, but the object becomes a one-off - i.e. adapted to the location once. The wooden slats serve as a connection to the large room sculpture. Both the concrete parts and the wooden elements can be owned and used in equal measure.
