A couple friends of mine from SF (Rebar) are participating in the Experimenta Design Amsterdam exhibition this weekend being held on the IJ.

They have created some wild modular, inflatable, hot pink, star shaped outdoor furniture designed in collaboration with Droog Design. It is called a BUSHWAFFLE. It softens the hard, linear urban cityscape and provides new opportunities for social play.

REBAR, Droog Design and ExperimentaDesign Amsterdam are pleased to invite you to the opening of Droog Event 2: Urban Play. REBAR will be distributing individual BUSHWAFFLE to all participants, free of charge.

JOIN San Francisco-based art collective REBAR on an expedition through Amsterdam’s public spaces, to unleash BUSHWAFFLE.

SWARM with friends and transform any sidewalk or street into a soft space for lounging and relaxing.

CREATE new spaces for social exchange and collaboration.
