Wired: Dutch Designer Hacks His City With Swing Sets, Fireplaces

Banksy is known for his spray-painted murals, and wheat-paste posters made Shepard Fairey famous, but Dutch designer Thor ter Kulve is making his name as a graffiti artist by inventing products that turn functional civic infrastructure into fun furniture. His projects include a swing that can be surreptitiously clamped to a light pole, a wacky sprinkler designed to be mounted on a fire hydrant, and a cozy fireplace crafted to sit on top of a public trash can.
