Urban Garden came to be when London-based Artwise
commissioned Amsterdam-based TJEP
to design an iconic object to be used in a lounge area during events
around the world. The object is part of Tribe Art, a series of
international contemporary art commissions and projects developed in
partnership with the Lucky Strike B·A·R Honda Formula One racing team.
Artwise has worked with Tribe Art for several years.
TJEP’s solution to the lounge object dilemma was Urban Garden, a
Versailles—garden inspired inflatable mega floor ornament that inspires
users to sit, hang, jump and dance. TJEP is a partnership of Dutch
designers, Frank Tjepkema and Janneke Hooymans (and others). Tjepkema
is known for his work for well-known brands such as Philips, British
Airways, Droog Design and Heineken. Hooymans’ work includes the
interior of the Unox Soup Factory and contributions to the design of
the Glasgow Science center. By Tuija Seipell
