YAROPRA is a furniture-sculpture, designed for a waiting room, an entrance hall, a terrace or a meeting place. This sculpture fully leans against contemporary design and architecture. Similar to Peter Cooks Plugin City (1964), YAROPRA is a construction kit with standardized construction elements, which can take on different shapes. YAROPRA looks like an arbitrary shape, but is in fact the result of structured ranging of all components of the network. Moreover, YAROPRA is a metaphor for the invisible network or connections between people. That is why this artwork understands the social dimension both in a functional and a conceptual way. With YAROPRA, Nick Ervinck thus combines a flexible structure, a social functionality with an explicit aesthetic design.
