 “The middle of the road; although it is a common sight around us, we are hardly ever allowed to be in it.”

So goes Yuma Kano’s rationale behind his “Anywhere Road” mat. The Kanagawa-based designer behind the smiley-face screwdriver and the light bulb vases created this picnic sheet for those who can’t stand to leave the big city behind. Those who always dreamed to lie down and relax in the middle of the street. Or simply those who really want to be noticed in park’s picnic area.

Either way, this one-of-a-kind picnic sheet is sure to entice lots of people. And to make sure there will be enough space for you and all of your friends, multiple “Anywhere Road” mats can connect together to create your very own street across the park.

If you want to know more about Kano’s work, be sure to read this recent interview.
