The URBAN LIVING ROOM is living room is a combination of a social and cultural program. A design project that focuses on hospitality and small-scale meetings in the big city. The Urban Living Room makes the city a homely place.
The URBAN LIVING ROOM is also a project that challenges the way public space is treated. We are reaching out to people (locals and professionals) that are working on improving the living conditions in urban space. We are developing programs and strategies on how to deal with changing needs, bottom up approaches and a shifting role of policy makers. We offer workshops and expertise with which we want to set up collaborative projects that change city life.
The installation is also an international traveling exhibition of Dutch Design. It includes fabulous designs by Dirk van der Kooij, Roderick Vos for Linteloo, Richard Hutten for NGispeN, Ben Oostrum and Jan Melis, Daniel White, Chris Koens, Ramon Middelkoop, Studio ID Eddy and Bas Kortmann.
The project is a collaboration between designer Bas Kortmann and artist and organizer Studio ID Eddy. Together they did research into archetypal living rooms in the Netherlands. This research led to the design of living room settings. URBAN LIVING ROOM offers hospitality, and small-scale meeting places in the big city. URBAN LIVING ROOM makes the city feel like home.
