As inhabitants, we have gradually lost the impulse to experience the city areas as a community "external house", where we can live expressing the subjectivity of perception and use of public urban space

With the Parasite Urban Design project, studio B.L.U.E. revives the concept of a city which is lived in a spontaneous way by the individuals who inhabit it and pass through it. A parasite is by definition a creature living in a symbiotic relationship with another from which it draws energy

B.L.U.E.

From this idea comes Parasite Street Furniture, a type of multifunctional furniture that "parasites" the public space. People can use them without restrictions, by using their imagination and creativity. The aim of the designers is to reappear the 'home-city' that we have lost and to extend the private space to the public one
