Unpool is a seating system made of four plywood and mesh ‘wave slices’. With a plywood frame and an alternating netted and wood surface, the waves undulate along, varying in height from 18 in to 3 ft high. On top of each bench is a mixed variety of abstracted inflatable chair and pool toy-like cushions. Visitors are invited to sit both on these cushions and on the netted top of the wave itself. Unpool is a wild and wavy pool party, an oasis to connect with friends during a hot urban summer and a relaxing, calm place to lounge.
Unpool was created for the Village au Pied-du-Courant 2018 located in Montréal, QC.
The Village au Pied-du-Courant is an urban living lab for experimentation and development of new practices in design. It is created new every year; it aims to revitalize unused urban space and connect the community.
Come get cool in the Unpool!
