Parklet for the UNESCO City of Design.

 

 

Graz is known for many things. However, the city is not yet considered a surfing mecca.

Unlike in the home of the Akoya wood, you can enjoy the wet pleasure in this country only in the Mur – and even that is reserved for a few.

Putting on a wetsuit and dragging the surfboard counts as an annoying side effect anyway. From now on you can surf in dry conditions. Totally relaxed with a cool drink in your hand, alone or in a group, and the whole thing without a wetsuit and surfboard. Because now a wooden wave floats the parked streets of the city and invites you to “City Surfing”. A surf course is not necessary for this.

Where there is a will, there`s a wave!

 

 

The design is inspired by ergonomic thoughts and tries to create a connection to the material of the parklets, the New Zealand Accoya wood. Unlike in the home country of Accoya wood, the surfing possibilities in Graz are limited. The concept “Surfin’ Graz” wants to change this.

A place to celebrate.

 

 

In honor of the 10th UNESCO of Design anniversary of the city of Graz, we try to use simplicity and elegance to catch the attention of passing users and awaken their interest in design.
