New urban art installation in Varaždin – an interactive bench that lights up and plays

first_imgThe city of Varaždin on Franjevački trg received a new artistic urban installation – an interactive bench. The idea of ​​the bench is to symbolize the musical heritage of Varaždin, one of the most important elements of the city’s identity, which is proud of its long, rich and vibrant musical tradition and scene.The bench is designed so that it has five surfaces that produce sound and emit light under load. The sound samples, created by Varaždin music artist Emil Herceg, are ambient, as is the light produced, and the interactivity and modularity of the design allows the tonal setting to change depending on the time of day, season or other authors.This is an intervention in space realized through the project “Art on the street – urban furniture in the function of tourism” which the Tourist Board of the City of Varaždin has been continuously implementing since 2012. The aim of the project is to enrich the public space of Varaždin with permanent artistic creations that strengthen the city’s identity, enrich its cultural and tourist image and strengthen the comfort of living and living in Varaždin.So far, as part of this project, a number of art installations have been set up in the historic city center, such as the city’s “roommates” (turtles, mermaids, iron man…), the installation View and Birds, benches Obluci, the Royal Chair, Krinolina ljubavi, the installation Varaždinsko zelje and Varaždinski clip, etc.The project of setting up specially designed and designed benches was created as a result of creative cooperation of TZGV with mentors and students of the Design Studio of the Zagreb Faculty of Architecture and young Croatian product designers.The interactive music bench, which is set up on Franjevački trg in front of the former Varteks department store, is the result of cooperation with Zagreb’s Studio Clinica, which specializes in product design and the design of interpretation setups for various institutions. Based on their idea, the bench was made and equipped by the Varaždin team.last_img read more
