‘XXX TIMES SQUARE WITH LOVE’ by J.MAYER.H und Partner, Architekten

Times Square Arts and J. Mayer H. have inaugurated XXX TIMES SQUARE WITH LOVE, three X-shaped outdoor loungers custom designed for Times Square in New York City, each of which can accommodate up to four people who can literally lie back, stare up and send a snapshot of either themselves of the mix of signs and sky above them.

Originally inspired by the X-like intersection of Broadway and 7th Avenue that forms Times Square, the loungers are the first specially-commissioned ongoing street furniture for the new Times Square plazas. Each X of XXX TIMES SQUARE WITH LOVE can accommodate up to four people, with each leg of the X serving as an almost-horizontal lounger that allows people to lie down and enjoy a totally different – and more leisurely – perspective than the bustling plazas of Times Square. They can relax with a book from the new Strand book kiosk or, using the hashtag #TSqXXX, they can share their love on social media, tag friends, and send them XXX TIMES SQUARE WITH LOVE!

Juergen Mayer H., Artist, said, ‘Lying down on XXX allows for a completely different perception of Times Square and its media presence. The view goes vertical while you are broadcast via many of the public webcams of Times Square looking down on you. And besides your new perspective on the skyline, you might want to snap a selfie of yourself relaxing to share your XXX with friends and family.’
