Freiraum Kit 2.0 is a modular urban furniture system.
Its general purpose is to enhance the quality of dwelling and waiting around train stations. The approach is to create sitting facilities and vegetation.
All modules have been developed for serial production, easy maintenance and inclusion. They can be moved by a pallet truck and rearranged over and over again. They function alone-standing or combined as small urban landscapes.
