Those who know their neighbors feel safer, are less lonely and are happier. It’s as simple as that. The quality of life in a neighbourhood is largely determined by the layout and maintenance of the district, and by the sense of community among its residents.
The disappearance of neighbourhood shops, bars, squares and sofas in the last 50 years means that there are fewer meeting places today. You may still find some sofas in the city center, but they are few and far between in residential districts. In the last few decades, many municipalities have taken away park sofas because of public disturbances. We think that there should be at least 10 sofas in every neighbourhood . 
In fact we, at Social Sofa, believe that there should be a sofa on every street. In our crusade against social isolation, we have designed the Social Sofa, a concrete living room style outdoor sofa. Decorate a sofa together and make friends for life.


Your own street art!

Mosaicing the bank yourself with local residents, staff, family or volunteers is a great project. It is intensive, creative and fun. You do a big job together, some of the advantages are:
  • Team building
  • Memories for life
  • Working creatively in a safe environment
  • Your own street art
Design your own mosaic bench. We will draw the design for you on the couch in our studio and put together the mosaic package. The mosaic package consists of mosaic stones, glue, joint and tools. The bench is transported together with the steel work table and the mosaic package to the place where you will mosaic the bench.

Social Sofa gives you a one-day mosaic workshop. You get to work yourself!

We will stay in touch with you during the process to ensure the final touches are made. When the sofa is completely ready, we will come and finish it and add joints. The sofa is brought to the desired location by our transporter.

We hope that you and your group will have very happy memories of this!


Mosaic art is a profession in itself, which is why we work with professionals and volunteers in our studios to ensure that your idea really comes to life! To ask? Contact us!
