East European Music Conference//Sibiu 2017

This summer we were invited to make the lounge for the first East European Music Conference in Sibiu. Powered by Banca Transilvania. We also took care of the stage design, keeping it minimal so the speakers would be totally in the light. Great conferences, good vibes and most interesting people. Thank you, ARTmania Events!!!!

Sibiu is a great place and I am glad there is this new project: Sibiu-festival city! Hope it will grow nicely.

The team: Ioana Trantea, Tibi Anghel, Liviu Revnic and Ciprian. All the love for the effort and ideas!

Copacul cu Carti// The tree with books

Waha Lounge @ street delivery 2016

I’ve been taking long breaks from this blog. I want to write more, maybe on daily basis, but I need exercise and clarity. So wish me luck, I hope it will happen at least weekly in the beginning.

So remembering summer…another yearly project that I love and enjoy making. It’s the Waha Lounge @ Street delivery festival. Street Delivery is an urban festival in Bucharest, one that draws attention to the public life of the city, trying to make the people come together and use the streets for learning, playing, creating small communities. The community feeling is quite lost in the big cities, and in Bucharest is getting lost also. So this festival is making something concrete. It closes one street in the center of the city, for cars, and opens it for people and their activities.

Everybody wants to be there. In the first years, cause I’ve been participating since it started, it was more money oriented, but in the last years something changed and the whole gathering took a nice artsy turn.

My friends that are making the Waha festival, one lovely festival in the Romanian mountains, wanted to be present again this year with a forestry lounge, to let people know about the location and line up of the festival. The challenge is to cover more than 200 square meters in only a couple of hours, as the  street starts closing only that morning.

And of course, trying to use the old walls and fences and everything there is around. After we finished, we met a really nice Norwegian writer, by accident, and also by accident he told us he came to Romania especially to go to Waha Festival. So good energies attract good people. It was a nice preview for the summer festival, where we ended up in July, but that is another story.

Creative Fest 2016

The lounge area we made for Creative Fest 2016.

The place looks better with people chilling, so I won’t show you the making off process.

I like the contrast between the huge metal structure in the back and the happy place we created. Bucharest is still a city of contrasts.

the Happy team: Ioana, Vidi, Buze and Cristi.

 

Agora InCotroceni

AGORA INCOTROCENI a insemnat activarea comunitatii locale printr-un eveniment public, desfasurat intr-o intersectie, pana atunci plina de masini parcate si cam atat.

Impreuna cu UNNU am realizat mobilierul urban care a imbracat pentru o zi intersectia, transformand-o intr-o piata urbana in adevaratul sens al cuvantului.

Ziua a fost plina de activitati si ateliere dedicate copiilor cat si ateliere participative in care s-au luat decizii legate de cartier, totul fiind coordonat de tinerii inimosi din Incotroceni.

InCotroceni  inseamna o mana de oameni care si-au propus  sa faca din Cotroceni un spatiu mai bun de locuit, un cartier mai primitor si mai armonios. Din cate am vazut pe 2 iulie, sunt pe drumul cel bun si eu una sunt fericita ca am putut ajuta!

Bohemian Square//Brasov//2015

Another summer installation. This time in Brasov, Romania, for Bohemian Square Festival.

I called it ” squares in squares”. My idea was to make the place warmer through colors and interaction. So we put together some wood structures to define the new space, filled them with recycled pallets and fluffy pillows, and colored the sky. The Urban Lounge became the place to meet for that weekend! It was a lot of work for us and the people who helped, especially cause the weather was cold and we had one week of continuous rain to finished the work, but, at the end, the sun started to shine and of course, like it always happens, everything turned out just fine!

Many tkanks to Restauratorii & QUIB for all the wood work. Thanks the organizers for inviting us, and to the magic team: Vidi, Raluca, Tibi, Ioana, Moise for the textile work and to Ioana and Laura for giving us a great house& time in Brasov.

Much Love!

Electric Castle 2015

It’s been a long time since I wrote something here. Didn’t have time and didn’t feel like writing. It’s winter and I dream of summer and remember all the cool things we’ve done 😀 around the country. The first was Electric Castle Festival, the magic festival near Cluj, on a beautiful castle site. It’s my third time at the castle and I already feel like home there. About last year’s experience you can read here.

It’s like a dream being there for more than one week and working on the chill areas. Colours, hammocks, shadow, lights…music. If you’re not into music you can still spend some time there, going to  Restoration workshops happening all summer//powered by Transylvania Trust.

magic team: ioana, andrei, cristi, marcel, andrei i, gabi, carla, andrei g, oti & a big, big help from the logistics team of the festival. Thanks beautiful people!

I’m just gonna leave here the pictures people from all over the world took @ the festival.

Dracula Film Festival

Every project is special to us, but when it came to a Horror and Fantasy Festival held in our beloved Brasov, when eight international shorts and seven Romanian shorts ran together, when a new version on Dracula’s story was launched, when all these happen, things seem to be even more interesting.

As you probably figured out, we’ve been to Brasov for the second edition of Dracula Film: Horror and Fantasy Festival and we completed the fantasy atmosphere with a few scenic accents and details. Therefore we formed an army of bats and spiders with their webs and we conquered the Dramatical Theatre (Sica Alexandrescu) where the grand opening of the festival took place.
We loved everything: the atmosphere, the people and enjoyed Gary Shore’s first feature movie, Dracula Untold, very inspiring for our little bottles with semi-dry Dracula’s blood.

On this occasion we want to give our special thanks to the organizers, to the sponsors and to all the team of volunteers that made everything possible.
Also many thanks to our special collaborator from Brasov: Horea.

Till next time, enjoy some pictures!

Bohemian Square ~ august in Brasov ~

When the girls from Asociatia Bohemian told us they would like to organise the second edition of Festivalul de cultura urbana Bohemian Square, wanting it to be bigger and with new sections we thought it could be a challenge for us and we didn’t hesitate to integrate this nice project among our summer challenges.

We chose one of the squares from the middle of Brasov’s old center as our playground and after a few months of creating and innovating , there’s the beautiful project: We’ve created an urban route, linking two important points of the city Piata Sfatului and Piata Enescu through a series of interventions designed to transform some urban spaces rarely used in public spaces with socio-cultural value.

Old City, New architecture – tensile design, defining the market, creating an intimate space, a living market, not just a headroom. We upholstered the pavement with grass and created The Bohemian Lounge with pieces of furniture made of reused pallets and with the famous La Obiect poufs.

The comfy spot invited people to stop by the outdoor library opened during the festival. For three days there was music, theatre and lots of workshops taking place on the streets of Brasov. It was just PERFECT!

We would like to thank to Gazonul, Mobilier din paletiHumanitas libraries and Okian for the involvement and full support! Also thank you Alpinisha team for giving us your invaluable aid in the achievement of all items!

Many special thanks to Asociatia Bohemian for inviting us and making us part of their wonderful story!

Last, but not least a big Thanks to the volunteers for their involvement!

AIRFIELD festival Sibiu – it’s a must!

We continue our summer adventure with the fairest of them all. Airfield Festival Sibiu, a brand new festival located in Sibiu, with good underground music, airplanes and lots of love was a challenge for La Obiect.

What started as a design concept for the chill area, became a real stage of the festival and we do believe that next year we’ll make it even bigger and more interactive for the lovely public. So put it in your schedule: next year , beginning of August, we’ll learn how to fly again at Airfield.

On this occasion we want to send our special thanks to the organisers for making everything happen. It was a great pleasure working with the volunteers from Sibiu…we had lots of fun!

Airfield is about good music, great scenery, Sibiu and surroundings, airplanes and parachutes, people and great vibe.

THANK YOU ALL!
