该装置的灵感来源于caramel工作室于同地段“林茨09”的另一个临时座椅项目。这种新型的城市装置形式，旨在提升艺术大学一楼展览空间的开放性，加强空间与林茨大学学院及“中央广场（Splace am Hauptplatz）”之间的联系。即使作为临时装置，公共座椅也需要能够为居民及游客服务至少3年以上。夏天，座椅周围喷出的水雾可以降温，让游客流连忘返。

Inspired by the temporary seating steps in the same place at “Linz 09”, also Caramel at the time, this newly created form of city furniture is intended to open the art university Linz and the “Splace am Hauptplatz” to the exhibition space on the ground floor of the Art University, towards the main square – and vice versa. Intended as a temporary installation, the installation should be available to Linzers and visitors for at least 3 years. In summer, some of the spray mist even cools you down while lingering on the urban seating landscape.

The striking colour scheme also sees itself as an exclamation mark (attention! something is happening here!) by optically highlighting the inconspicuous exterior of the Art University and at the same time guides the visitor to the main entrance of the institution.
