About the artwork

The 15 artistic mosaic benches were installed to mark the occasion of the 16th Sculpture Link in Knokke-Heist in 2010. Fifteen artists each spent an average of 600 hours applying the stones to each bench. The mosaic benches each feature a different image.

About the artist

The Social Sofa project started in Tilburg, the Netherlands, before eventually finding its way to our seaside resort as part of Art Nocturne Knocke art fair. Social Sofa makes mosaic products and provides an opportunity for artists and people disadvantaged by the current labour market.
