Dreams aren’t just for the bedroom. When a city dreams together, they are limitless.

On June 21st, 2017, we created one of the world’s largest artwork installations at Kikar Rabin, a public square symbolizing peace for millions of us.

The Utopian Dream, created by Israeli artist Amit Trainin, envisions the future of Israel: the environment, culture and many beautiful dreams such as tea pots that generate rain clouds, a train that travels directly to India throughout the Middle East, and a landscape of natural beauty.

The artwork was printed and puzzled onto 1,500 mats, on which thousands of individuals meditated and partook in a collective yoga class.

“The Big Dream” is a way to show the world that, as Jews around the world and in Israel, we’re optimistic about the future.

The limited-edition mats are being sold as stand-alone pieces which can be used for yoga, a carpet or a beautiful piece of art. They are currently on display at a pop-up gallery at Rega Salon (Shenkin 57) in Tel Aviv and available to purchase for just 200 shekels through March 9th, 2018. A 15-percent discount applies to anyone who mentions Citizen Café.


Michal Benari is 25 years old and recently moved to Tel Aviv from London. She is the head of marketing and business development at Dreame.
