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?

Smart is offering a unique cinema experience in Australia. Like a drive-in cinema but their cars are placed inside the movie theatre instead of outside. The idea behind it is to show that as well as being compact on the outside in fact Smart is more spacious inside than thought. So spacious that it will be an enjoyable experience to watch a movie in these cars for 1.5-2 hours.
