The ”Off-Ground“ project by Amsterdam-based designers Jair Straschnow and Gitte Nygaard seeks to scale up play elements so that they can be used as alternative public seating. Their design asks ‘why are benches the only option for public space?’ and uses discarded firehoses within an innovative frame that allows you to adjust the ends of the seat for sitting, lounging or lying down…by forming a low seat, a swing or a hammock. Brilliant! See Off-Ground at the Danish Architecture Center in our-favorite-city-for-play, Copenhagen.
