REstatica | Shared City Furniture Along Maritsa River
REstatica transforms a temporary artistic installation, Natura Statica, from the programme of "Plovdiv 2019" - AdataAir, into shared urban furniture on the banks of the Maritsa River. The project recycles twenty-four wooden beams, rearranging them into a huge mikado-like structure. The cross beams are a composition of benches, tables and bar counters, as well as a kind of children's climbing frame. They are located on the riverside promenade on the north side of the river, overlooking the riverbed and habitat of Maritsa.
The concept of the circular economy, in which residual materials are a key part for the production of new products and the rethinking of the Maritsa River, as a green place for recreation, are among the main highlights that REstatica aims. The project addresses topics related to material reuse, architecture, construction, ecology, design, manufacturing, art and public urban policy.
REstatica is a project of ALHM collective, a group of specialists with similar worldviews and value systems, working on diverse projects in the fields of architecture and applied arts. The project team includes Kund Kopazh, sculptor of the original art installation, made during the Adata Residence in 2019, architects Valentin Denkov, Ivan Bonev and Lenko Mihov and photographer Marin Kafedjiiski.
Shared city furniture on the riverside promenade of the Maritsa River is in public access for citizens and guests of the city from September 14.
