Attitude, irreverence and pushing the boundaries are almost synonymous with skate culture. So doesn’t creating furniture whose express purpose is to be skated on seem a bit like playing Pin the Tail on the Donkey sans blindfold?
Created by Jurjen Semeijn for Dutch Design week, the Street Furniture exhibit was first showcased at Area Fifty One, Europe’s largest indoor skate park. The concept is to bring skating indoors and explore a realm of possibilities that has not yet been tapped: just think – you could be the first to ever boardslide across a living room sofa. At least, we assume it hasn’t been tried… We’re not recommending this as a replacement for your lay-z boy, nor do we take responsibility for back pain, but if you want to be on the cutting edge of the skater-turned-modern-art-collector community, take a look.
