This summer we were invited to make the lounge for the first East European Music Conference in Sibiu. Powered by Banca Transilvania. We also took care of the stage design, keeping it minimal so the speakers would be totally in the light. Great conferences, good vibes and most interesting people. Thank you, ARTmania Events!
Sibiu is a great place and I am glad there is this new project: Sibiu-festival city! Hope it will grow nicely.
The team: Ioana Trantea, Tibi Anghel, Liviu Revnic and Ciprian. All the love for the effort and ideas!

What We Did

We built our shading lounge area for Copacul cu Carti, a happening taking place in some parks in Bucharest. Lounge area, books, movies and some music for healing the ears and soul. Have a great summer friends!

Lounge urban pentru Copacul cu Carti
“Relaxare în mijlocul naturii. Copacul cu Cărți este un eveniment organizat anual de Primăria Municipiului București, prin Creart, care îi motivează pe bucureșteni să redescopere plăcerea cititului în mijlocul naturii.”
Fotografiile sunt de pe pagina oficiala a evenimentului.
La inceputul lunii iulie, a avut loc la Cluj: Ong Fest Civic Break, un eveniment dedicat Ong urilor din Cluj. Desfasurat pe 1 iulie, evenimentul a adus intre zidurile cetatii o serie de oameni si activitati, pe care noi am incercam sa le legam printr-un fir de ata simbolic.
Am creat astfel un traseu subtil printre cauze ale Ong urilor si activitatile acestora.
“Anul acesta am acceptat provocarea de a organiza la Cluj ONGFest, în parteneriat cu Fundatia pentru Dezvoltarea Societatii Civile. A fost o atmosferă foarte plăcută, timp de o zi, pe strada Potaissa, lângă zidul cetății. O mulțime de oameni zâmbitori, o sumedenie de activități plăcute. Aveți aici un album cu momente surprinse de peste zi. (Mulțumim mult Mihai Biris pentru fotografii) Mulțumim colegilor din echipele Civitas și FDSC, dar și Ioana Trantea, Razvan Simion, Cosmin Ghenescu, Lupu Lucian, Andi Daiszler, Laura Panait, Cipria Nul, Bogdan Hudusan, Andrei Crișan, Bogdan Cristea, Laura Alicu și tuturor celor care ne-ați ascultat, ne-ați sfătuit, ne-ați sprijinit, ne-ați fost alături și ne-ați ajutat să dăm culoare zilei de 1 iulie. Mulțumiri și Kaufland Romania, Radio ZU, Primaria Cluj-Napoca, Casa de Cultura Cluj Napoca, H33, EMA, Uber, Clujul Cultural, Straight From The Bottle, Garage Musik Band. Pe curândl!”
Multumim echipei de implementare din Cluj: Good Guys Events cat si colegei Raluca Pascu pentru idei si good vibe!
I’ve been taking long breaks from this blog. I want to write more, maybe on daily basis, but I need exercise and clarity. So wish me luck, I hope it will happen at least weekly in the beginning.
So remembering summer…another yearly project that I love and enjoy making. It’s the Waha Lounge @ Street delivery festival. Street Delivery is an urban festival in Bucharest, one that draws attention to the public life of the city, trying to make the people come together and use the streets for learning, playing, creating small communities. The community feeling is quite lost in the big cities, and in Bucharest is getting lost also. So this festival is making something concrete. It closes one street in the center of the city, for cars, and opens it for people and their activities.
Everybody wants to be there. In the first years, cause I’ve been participating since it started, it was more money oriented, but in the last years something changed and the whole gathering took a nice artsy turn.
My friends that are making the Waha festival, one lovely festival in the Romanian mountains, wanted to be present again this year with a forestry lounge, to let people know about the location and line up of the festival. The challenge is to cover more than 200 square meters in only a couple of hours, as the street starts closing only that morning.
And of course, trying to use the old walls and fences and everything there is around. After we finished, we met a really nice Norwegian writer, by accident, and also by accident he told us he came to Romania especially to go to Waha Festival. So good energies attract good people. It was a nice preview for the summer festival, where we ended up in July, but that is another story.
It’s almost winter in Romania. It’s cold and we’re waiting for the snow to come!
So…meanwhile, we’re making stuff to decorate our homes and our friends homes. Nice Xmas gifts or just for fun!
They are all green//no tree had been injured in the making 🙂
The lounge area we made for Creative Fest 2016.
The place looks better with people chilling, so I won’t show you the making off process.
I like the contrast between the huge metal structure in the back and the happy place we created. Bucharest is still a city of contrasts.

AGORA INCOTROCENI a insemnat activarea comunitatii locale printr-un eveniment public, desfasurat intr-o intersectie, pana atunci plina de masini parcate si cam atat.
Impreuna cu UNNU am realizat mobilierul urban care a imbracat pentru o zi intersectia, transformand-o intr-o piata urbana in adevaratul sens al cuvantului.
Ziua a fost plina de activitati si ateliere dedicate copiilor cat si ateliere participative in care s-au luat decizii legate de cartier, totul fiind coordonat de tinerii inimosi din Incotroceni.
InCotroceni inseamna o mana de oameni care si-au propus sa faca din Cotroceni un spatiu mai bun de locuit, un cartier mai primitor si mai armonios. Din cate am vazut pe 2 iulie, sunt pe drumul cel bun si eu una sunt fericita ca am putut ajuta!
Summer has started for us!
First stop was Blaj Alive Festival, a small but strong festival in Transylvania. Thanks the organizers for having us there and the great atmosphere!
Met some good old friends and made new ones, feels like a great summer ahead.
The beautiful team:

Zino ~ the shaman
Tudor ~ the flying elf
Another summer installation. This time in Brasov, Romania, for Bohemian Square Festival.
I called it ” squares in squares”. My idea was to make the place warmer through colors and interaction. So we put together some wood structures to define the new space, filled them with recycled pallets and fluffy pillows, and colored the sky. The Urban Lounge became the place to meet for that weekend! It was a lot of work for us and the people who helped, especially cause the weather was cold and we had one week of continuous rain to finished the work, but, at the end, the sun started to shine and of course, like it always happens, everything turned out just fine!
Many tkanks to Restauratorii & QUIB for all the wood work. Thanks the organizers for inviting us, and to the magic team: Vidi, Raluca, Tibi, Ioana, Moise for the textile work and to Ioana and Laura for giving us a great house& time in Brasov.
