Thor ter Kulve


Dutch designer Thor ter Kulve transforms everyday city fixtures and imbues them with childlike zest – turning a fire hydrant into a fountain, and a boring light pole into a swing. According to Thor, “Thanks to [these designs], dull and derelict places become hangouts of choice…It’s my strong belief that in a time of economic hardship and individual isolation, we should address ourselves to public space as a collectively owned domain and possible ways to use it to our joint benefit.”
