The 'Rest' Air Restaurant in the Netherlands

While most of the information I could find on this exhibition was in Dutch, I thought it was still worth posting. This massive triangular stack of wooden picnic tables is an art project titled 'Rest' by Miguel Brugman and Martijn Engelbregt in Wageningen, Netherlands.

The project represents an, “air restaurant where food, social cohesion and the care nature and environment meet each other,” according to Trendbeheer.

It seems as though 'Rest' may actually have been an actual 'diner' of sorts for a short time, however they are apparently 'no longer taking reservations'. Fine by me, I get shaky just seeing those people sitting under a huge mountain of stacked tables. Stats for Picnic Table Pyramids Trending: Older & Chilly
