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!

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!
