The creation of the IMAGINA “letters”: mobile urban furniture from scrap materials for Imagina Madrid
In the summer of 2017, the ‘Imagina Madrid’ programme incorporates seven letters as an identifying element: IMAGINA, which travel to each of the 9 activity sites.
Second life: From August 2017, IMAGINA has been part of the Matadero Madrid’s equipment. All this new set of urban furniture and public space was built with reuse, meeting and mobility logics. The design is configured by a system of metal frames on wheels, on which reused balloons from Madrid’s old street-lamps are fixed (updated with a solar panel powered LED system), and reclaimed wood from old benches. All of them are materials retrieved from municipal urban furniture warehouses.
