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.

 

Shadow @ Coresi Mall Brasov

This spring  Brasov called us again, for a nice project @ the newest mall in the city, Coresi Mall. The architect, Iulian Calen designed a green area with a bicycle parking place and a skate park, and a wood structure, that we had to colour and construct our shadow on.

When we started there were no people coming to sit on the grass, but, as we built our shadow and layers, people started coming and relaxing there, looking at the mountains and having lunch.

We are not fans of shopping resorts, in general,  but we do like this spot in the city, a free green spot with a twist. And it’s nice to see that a Mall tries to give something back to the city.

And we’ll be back in august for Bohemian Square, the urban culture festival taking place in the center of the city!

Thanks to our brave helpers from Alpine Zone and collaborators from Alpinisha!

Ioana Trantea: witch

Cristo: shaman

Razvan, Ionut :  elves

Winter Time is Happy Time!

In Bucharest winter came in quite early, so I closed myself in the studio and started working on some inspirational objects. The first one is the Christmas Tree. All made of recycled wood, forever green and with lovely lights and angels, it’s like a sensitive touch for the holiday season.

Then I remembered I had some indian stones very well kept in a a jewellery box: a very beautiful lapis lazuli, a moonstone and some interesting stone without a name:), so I made pendants out of them; not too much silver wire is used cause I wanna keep the stone important, the wire is just a net holding the energy inside.
And then, because we haven’t seen the Sun here in almost a month, I made myself one happy sunny pillow! It’s a meditation pillow, a lazy sunny Oasis in the grey city:)
Love and light!

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!

Pentru ziua Inei, am creat impreuna cu Ovidiu o brosa din argint, cu ametist prins in cupru si un soricel funky, pandant.
Ambele sunt lucrate manual si unicat.
La multi ani Ina!

Cubix e un puf cub cu latura de 60/60/60 umplut cu muuulte perle de polistiren. E numai bun ca taburet si loc de joaca pentru Matei si Pavel de la Lucruri Marunte.

Cei doi nazdravani (parinti) m-au rugat sa reconditionez un puf vechi, care insa era plin ochi de perle. Asa ca am facut huse noi si l-am dat inapoi pentru joaca celor mici.

Pisici din argint, iedera colorata, pasari cantatoare si un pic de muzica pentru urechi fine.
