Urban Oasis / Mobile footbath

Urban Oasis
Urban Oasis

The project aims to create an opportunity for participants to meet new people without knowing their ‘profile’ beforehand like we do in internet-based meetings. It brings people together regardless of their age, gender, religion, ethnicity, and many other disparities that refrain people from knowing each other and tears the wall of division that is resulted in urban society. It is designed with a precise joinery system instead of using silicone or glue and protected by natural linseed oil. Each part of the footbath is designed to be fit into the bath on wheels that enables the footbath to be set in any locations that have access to the water.
