Giant groovy bean bag modules create a dynamic and interactive group listening experience at the “Vinyl” exhibition.
Groove Grove, a large scale social furniture installation, was included in exhibition an exhibition at the Oakland Museum of California, Vinyl: The Sound and Culture of Records explores the cultural and social meaning of vinyl records. The Vinyl exhibition includes a group listening area, where museum visitors can play records for a group of friends and other interested folks.
Inspired by the bean bag chairs found in groovy basement listening rooms across America and the world, Groove Grove comprises five 18-foot long bean bag modules that can be reconfigured by museum visitors to create a range of social spaces for optimal vinyl listening, socializing and play.
Like many of our projects, Groove Grove was a collaborative effort, with Jeanne Henzel from Joona Creates providing design consultation and fabrication services.
