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?
For the launch of the movie Sex and the City 2, the trendy Café Etienne Marcel in Paris was redesigned as Café Sex and the City. For a limited time fans were invited to many activities in keeping with the movie: cocktail and cupcake workshops, make-over sessions, make-up bars and even conferences on how to break up with a man.
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.
