What is Social Sofa?
“People who know their neighbors feel safer, are less lonely and are happier. It’s as simple as that” says Karin Bruers, founder of Social Sofa. “The vibrancy of the neighborhood is mainly determined by the planning and maintenance of the neighborhood and the social engagement of the people who live there. At Social Sofa, we believe that every street needs a Social Sofa. To combat social depression, we developed the Social Sofa: an outdoor concrete bench. Covering the bench with mosaic together creates a friendship for life.”
