Urban Lounge / Patrick Vogel

By:  | February - 2 - 2012

The Urban Lounge designed by Patrick Vogel from the Wismar University is a small urban furniture project for the Hafencity Hamburg. The concept is to generate a modern interpretation of a conventional bench or city lounge in the heart of a new city quarter. The lounge is made out of a traditional vertical lamella facade system that transforms into an aesthetic, contemporary communication and chillout spot, directly next to the Elbe riverside.

The general form is created by an optical illusion, made out of individual CNC-bended steel slats, covering the existing concrete facade. Target of the project was to use existing urban spaces, to upgrade the image of a location and to face the existing concrete facades, combined with a specific benefit. The whole system is covering different buildings and transforms continuously.
