The Cube Pavilion is less of a cube and more of a pentagon divided into an open and flexible dining area with a serving area and visible kitchen, all of which wraps around an 50 sq meter terrace. Conceived as a pop-up module that can easily be built up and taken down, the Cube can easily be transported by train, boat, truck or even helicopter to access more remote cliff-side locations. Built for any climate, even for hot or cold locations, the pop up restaurant will be in use year round.

Lightweight materials will be used to construct the restaurant, for both ease of transportation and to have a light footprint on whatever rooftop the module is perched on. Part of the exterior is covered in a aluminum skin that has been laser-cut to create a texture with a geometric design that covers the whole of the outer surface. In addition, it uses materials that are highly innovative in terms of technology, eco-sustainability and energy saving and the building will be re-used many times as it travels around Europe.

As you might imagine, being sponsored by Electrolux, the whole point is to showcase their top of the line appliances and chefs from all over the continent will show off their skills with specially designed menus. The 140 sq meter restaurant will begin its travels April 1 on the arc of the Parc du Cinquantenaire in Brussles before moving along with a companion Cube, to Italy, Russia, Switzerland, and Sweden for 3 months stints at each.
