Kiosk m.poli

The kiosk is designed to be used for temporary street markets or handicraft fairs. It isn’t thought of as an individual object, but as part of a whole that builds up a small village, a little world of its own fitted into the city. The design is based on archetypical images: town, house, chimney… When closed, the kiosk is a volume covered by a double roof, a house in its uttermost minimal expression. The scale and the shape are so basic that at first glance it might even be a toy, a Monopoli house. When opened a transformation starts. A part of its façade rotates upon the roof and the kiosk acquires a more vertical and striking proportion: that of a house with an oversized chimney. The chimney works as a great advertising board and is back litten at night. With the transformation the kiosk reveals its inside, a house full of surprises, each one different and randomly colored. The outer skin is a naturally rusted steel plate decorated with punched floral motifs. In future series different skins such as wood or glass are possible without varying the main configuration. In December 2006 the city council of Madrid installed one hundred kiosks throughout three different handicraft markets. Authors: Brut Deluxe Ben Busche and Isabel Barbas, Architects
