A new oasis of calm in the city center of Brussels. Cities are increasingly lacking places to escape the fast and impersonal, metropolitan pace. Sharing time with friends to eat, to talk, to gather are seldom moments of fresh air. Therefore MINI LIVING created the installation “Breathe”: This island uses natural, affordable, easy-to-use materials like a new breed of honeysuckle plants and olivine stones in water and soil to purify the surrounding air. Extremis picnic tables and shades are welcoming passers-by to take a seat and enjoy the oasis of calm in the middle of the city.
