Moss Port is an installation design concept for ZigZagCity Rotterdam 2013.
Chosen location on the route
Put the focus back on the small things in a big and fast growing city like Rotterdam. The “smaller thing” on location I focused on was moss.
A design that would make people notice moss again. In a wet country like The Netherlands, moss is always present between the nooks and crannies of the pavement or cobble stone streets. It is natural, soft, and has a beautiful green color.
In the design the focus is on the muting effect of moss. With the “Moss Port”, we created an installation in which people experience a moment of silence in a fast-paced, expanding, and always busy environment. The idea was to truly create a moment for themselves.
Moss Port was nominated to travel with D-EXTO through The Netherlands for six months.
D-EXTO (Delft EXperience TOmorrow) is an initiative that is a sustainable innovation engine. D-EXTO has different sustainable projects and innovations that let visitors interact and see what the possibilities and effects are of nature and the human body.
