A break on the sidewalk

In the first posts a spoke about that our cities are characterized by a frenetic way of life…look to this two citizens, thanks to an idea of design, they can live for a moment in a city were people are not  forced by fast rhythms. I will explain.6a00d834522c5069e200e54f20015a8833-800wi

The work presented here was made by Maya Goldberg, a recent graduate of the Central Saint Martin’s College of Art and Design. It’s is a cup holder with an adjustable clamp integrated into the cup holder. You can use it hanging it at sidewalk light pole and have an instant bar for socializing and stopping your busy city-life-day.6a00d834522c5069e200e54f1ffe968833-800wi1

It is called Claim(p) because combine “claim” and “clamp” into one idea, in fact the aim of the urban cup holder is to encourage people to reinterpret street settings and claim them as their territory, instead of just using them as a passage. It can also be a kind of business for all those pubs that collect people drinking outside in front of them.
