The Rocker, The Slider & The Wobbler
Beatriz Peró Giannini
The project explores how people behave and interact with each other in the urban space. By combining the objects with the archetypically Dutch Amsterdammertjes, the aim is to reappropriate the bollards to generate positive fleeting encounters between strangers and to foster trust.
The three products create this through balance, cooperation and fun by moving in different ways when people sit on them. A critique on society’s diminishing urban interactions, the objects are only partially functional if used by one person; to function perfectly they need two people.
