“Stranden” (the beach) is the name of a new permanent outdoor seating group. It’s placed in Rosenlundsparken, next to "Skatteskrapan" on the south island in the center of Stockholm. The sculpture measures 140 square meter with seats for 50 people. The park was opened in May 2008. All furniture and umbrellas are made so that the park can be open and used all year around. A huge lamp will light up the park at night and during the dark winter Stranden will remind the deep frozen Swedes of summer, holiday and lazy days at the beach.
