Meesters & Van der Park

green oasis
Design studio Meesters & Van der Park seeks inspiration from nature and technique resulting in Green Oasis, a summer house in the shape of an excavator, covered with climbing plants.
’The city changes through a continuous process of demolition and rebuilding. Nature comes second almost every time.’
With Green Oasis, Meesters & Van der Park re-introduces nature to the city in a functional way.
For the design, the agency was inspired by technique as well as nature: the shape of the excavator embodies technique, while the growing climbing plants represent the force of nature.
The result is a summer house in the shape of a life-sized excavator, covered with green climbing plants. It is literally a green oasis for those much needed moments of peace and quiet in an urban public environment.
The summer house offers seating to four people. The object is entirely made of laser cutted steel and produced by Phoenix Metaalwarenfabriek.
