Do you live in the city and long for the sea now and then? And especially that healthy sea air that freshens up your lungs and head? ‘KUR’ offers just that without the obligatory trip to the coast. These wall modules are inspired on the graduation towers that are traditionally used for salt production and in spas, with salt water running down a wall of stacked blackthorn. Timo Wuchner has downsized them into small-scale structures for urban environments. The prickly bushes catch drops of salt water, causing them to evaporate, letting the salt work its healing magic. Arranged into a walking route with places to linger, KUR provides a delightful sea breeze right in the city center.
