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.

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?
