All work, no play. All stress, noise, burn-outs and digital overdose. That is why Agentschap Natuur en Bos together with NAUWAU and Atelier Sam Ponette created 5 oasis in 5 flemish forests with an accent on peace, mindfulness and reconnecting to nature.

Our design was inspired by Japan and on how they use primary architectural shapes to embrace nature. The result are abstract wooden objects wich let the user decide on how to ‘use’ them, functionality becomes secondary to perception and sense.
