Pop-up kitchen near you
Designer Chmara Rosinke created a mobile kitchen, table and stools made of wood. It also features a foot pump to run water or pots for growing spices. All objects can be folded and easily moved from one place to another.
Why it matters
The mobile kitchen was primarily designed to enable people to actively use public spaces again. The designer used the kitchen in different public areas to sit and eat, inviting passers-by to join in and get to know one another. This piece of mobile furniture brought strangers to share a meal in an intimate fashion. Can this be a tool for brands to provide a little oasis in urban jungles?
STORY started as a startup fashion retail store and has now become a permanent pop-up shop: same location, but new retail layout every 4-6 weeks. Each month is a new “chapter”, such as COLOR, with an art-gallery installation feel, the point of view of a fashion magazine, and sells items like a small boutique.
A street in Lisbon's historic centre now features QR codes on its cobblestone pavement. When you read the code with a smartphone, you hear the sound of the tools that shaped the street before accessing information about tourist and commercial spots in the neighbourhood.
