Leo Tolstoy said: “There is only one time that is important – NOW! It is the most important time because it is the only time that we have any power.”
"Logoff gate" is NEON's response to a "Login gate competition" which called for designs for a new entrance gate for Järfälla’s Public Park. The competition asked designers to investigate the relevance of the Swedish "Folkets Park" (which was formerly a meeting place) in the age of online social media.
Our proposal suggests that the gate can be a device that will encourage the visitors of the park to be more present. The structure offers a place to leave your mobile phone to charge while you enjoy the landscape and company of your companions. The gate also has integrated lighting fitted within the interior which causes the structure to breathe inducing a calmness in the viewer.
