Art Project Creates a Cozy Oasis in any Urban Room

A provocative art project dubbed the Urban Living Room has appeared on the streets of Rotterdam, its first stop on a worldwide journey to "support dialogue and connection in public realm."

A collaboration between artist and organizer Studio ID Eddy and Theatre Group Powerboat, the entirely blue Urban Living Room (think of the living room ensemble from a family of Dutch Smurfs), "aims to give people a more homely experience in public space as well as stimulate spontaneous meetings and conversations," writes Joop de Boer.

Intended to function as a traveling exhibition of Dutch Design, the Urban Living Room will travel to Istanbul and Hong Kong after its stay on Schouwburgplein.
