Droog Design’s 100 Meter Bench
The Dutch Ministry of Foreign Affairs has tapped Claudia Linders of Droog Design to create an epic, 100 meter long bench that will wrap around the waterfront of IJburg, Amsterdam. The area is the youngest part of the city, made up of six artificial islands. The bench celebrates the area’s innovative character, representation of outstanding Dutch architecture and successful struggle against the water. the Dutch government will be also using the public space as a ‘gift’ — sections of the bench will be dedicated to their friends and associates worldwide.
