Gloria Furniture Fence

Søren Korsgaard arkitekt m.a.a. as Architects

Seating arrangement and light Installation at Roskilde Festivalen 2013, located in Back Alley in Gloria zone. A "quiet" area at the festival for dining and relaxation.


Intention It has for many years been a problem at the festival that festival guests urinated up the fences. Therefore several changing embellishments has been tried through the years, which had the intention to stop the peeing, unfortunately without much success. Via behavioral design, nudging, the festival guests was given a cosy place to sit and rest, and the result was, people stopped peeing on the fence, where the furniture was installed.


Light During the day the installation invoke attention through its expressive shapes, while LED armature integrated at the bottom/seating elements attracts people's attention after sunset.


Construction The fence could only be set up shortly before the festival site's opening. Therefor it was necessary to make the structure of prefabricated elements, so the installation could be done in a matter of hours.


Each section consists of a top and a bottom element with 8 variants of each. These can be combined into 45 different variants section. When the installation had to be integrated in a simple fence constructed of standard plywood boards of 1220x2440mm standing up, it was a natural choice to use the same material and dimensions. Therefore, each element 1220mm wide and 1220mm high, corresponding to a half-plate so that a top and a bottom element together will be as high as the other board fence.


The use of full size plywood boards reduced waste and speed up production, as the boards was cut fewer times.


Thanks to the Roskilde Festival and the great team of volunteers.
