Bähler-Boerma Bench

Students of the Terra Agricultural College designed this Gaudi-like "social sofa" on the occasion of the 100th anniversary of "Ons Dorpshuis" ("Our Church Hall") in the village of Eelde.

Ons Dorpshuis in Eelde is the oldest church hall in the Netherlands, and it was founded by Mrs G. Bähler-Boerma in 1915. The mosaic bench (known as "Bähler-Boerma Bench") was placed here in April 2015, next to the new roundabout near Ons Dorpshuis.
