The designers of No Studio from Wroclaw, Poland are creating a series of micro-installations to breath new life into neglected public spaces. Founded by Magda Szwajcowska and Michal Majewski, No Studio’s portfolio contains works that range from temporary architecture to small-scale architecture to product design. Their motto is to solve problems as opposed to creating monuments.
By adding clever, small-scale and minimalist designs (“almost no design” according No Studio) to neglected public spaces, the designers want to bring value, quality and new functionality to these locations. One of the urban hacks involves a series of basic, colorful sunbeds on an abandoned embankment stairway along the river Oder. The beds invite people to use the space, sit down, sunbathe, and enjoy the view.
