Like so many of their projects, MIELE wanted the pavilion to depict the company’s overarching aim to design stoves, washing machines and other appliances that are not only energy efficient, but also respect nature in terms of their modest use and conservation of natural resources. And the bright red lightbox definitely succeeds in this goal.

A very small modular program that is filled to the brim with daylight, the “floating” MIELE lightbox has such a small footprint that it’s possible to disassemble and pack it up without any kind of environmental scars. In fact, anyone who didn’t know that the pavilion was there previously would be none the wiser, so respectful is it of its site in Chile. We love MIELE, and we definitely love their new temporary furniture showcase!

    I love your “Light Box” home and would like very much to buy or build one to live out my retirement years.

    Would you kindly forward any information regarding this.

    Thank you very much.

    Also, could you kindly forward information on your appliance dealers in the coastal north and south carolina areas.
