Gallery: Solar Powered Shipping Container is a Pop-Up Prefab Party


Planning a party? You might want to check out Boxman Studio’s solar-powered party venue, which comes conveniently packed into a pop-up shipping container. The innovative system that takes just 20 minutes to set up but creates a classy place to enjoy a party. Unlike tents, the container is quick, lower impact, and much more durable, plus it’s about the hippest way to green your summer shindigs.

Check out these party digs- seating for 26 folks, a full bar, solar powered plug-ins for a TV, fridge, karaoke, lava lamps, whatever. The container walls fold down to create a covered 500 square-foot bamboo floor. Place several panels next to each other and you have a huge dance floor. They are happy to customize individual units for different needs.

Boxman Studio dutifully notes that energy to recycle the steel container is 4000 kWhrs, while the conversion of a container is 200 kWhrs. That is a powerful example on how sustainable reuse can be. Tents are notorious for getting shredded in a season or two, and they can be tough to set up on hard surfaces – the Boxman Studio’s sturdy containers can keep the party going.
