Hello Lamp Post by design and research studio PAN, Tom Armitage and Gyorgyi Galik, was the recipient of Watershed's first ever Playable City Award in 2013.

During the summer of 2013 Hello Lamp Post invited the people of Bristol to attempt a whole new way of communicating, through lamp posts, post boxes and other familiar street furniture, by texting the unique codes that can be found on public objects around the city. With Hello Lamp Post, these codes became secret passwords that allowed you to ‘wake up’ a sleeping object and discover what it had to say.
