DN100

DN100 Urban Furniture - Paris

For the „Les Berges Festival“ at the Seine in Paris three DN100’s were installed for the duration of three weeks at the Port de Solferino in Mai 2014.
The DN100 street-furnitures is a series of public guerilla seatings, reclaiming the public space. The Low-cost, weather-resistant and flexible drainage pipe is being wrapped around the existing urban infrastructure, turning bridge trusses into recliners, bike racks into loungers, and safety rails into sofas. Individual, localized, light and fragile the objects break with the conventional design of public space, creating moments of confusion, between private and public, official and illegal.
The material used for purpose other than intended is a common sight in the public space and strengthens this uncertainty, possibly also on the city side, as some benches survived surprisingly long.
I believe Seats are meaningful objects for the urban planning to determine the liveliness and qualities of urban spaces. They offer the function to sit and can aswell be understood as symbol allowing you to stay at a certain place. The bench as an intervention is therefore in relation to the space and its habits of behaviour and statutory provisions a contribution to a usable designed public space. The project is about joyful objects in an often defensive designed urban environment.
The interventionist and experimental approach in this project is elemental, as it is about the interaction with the people and the interference in the city. It is a design Statement to the discourse of the right to the city. A way to appropriate public space and question its accessibility and use.
