Fantastic Aluminum Origami Kiosks Pop Up in London

by , 02/06/14

In order to develop these extraordinary structures, the London-based studio first made several paper models based on Origami shapes. The small humble designs were then translated into real life structures made from sturdy recycled aluminum in collaboration with Entech Environmental Technology Ltd. Designed with a variety of uses in mind, the kiosks can be used as a spot for serving drinks, a DJ cabin — or just like they were last month, an Info Point for outdoor festivals.

Prefab and waterproof, the folded structures are made from hinged aluminum panels finished off with a resilient powder coating. The interior space that measures 6×10 feet is completely insulated and covered in plywood with a waterproof membrane. The kiosk opens and closes thanks to a counterweight system, and a winch raises the front from the base forming a canopy that protects people waiting to be served.
