Intro

The first public lounge in Switzerland spreads out in the St. Galler Bleichi district in the open air. It is covered in red rubber granulate and is lit by artistic lighting elements. The "city lounge" by artist Pipilotti Rist and architect Carlos Martinez invites you to relax and marvel.

The St. Galler Bleichi district is a typical shopping and office area. That there are nevertheless still people out and about until late in the evening is thanks to the airy sitting room designed by the multimedia artist Pipilotti Rist together with the architect Carlos Martinez. The great Red Square is furnished with sofas, chairs, tables, couches and a Porsche – which, like the ground, are covered in a bright red carpet of plastic granulate.

During the day, children use the unusual city landscape for play while the employees from the surrounding businesses take breaks on the comfortable seating. In the evening, lighting elements which hang above the square like floating boulders light the scene and draw the young and young at heart into their light.
