MOSS PORT

INSTALLATION DESIGN

Moss Port is an installation design concept for ZigZagCity Rotterdam 2013. 

Chosen location on the route

Noordmolenwerf, Rotterdam

Concept

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.

Design

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.
