Kjosk is a collaborative project that started when Rosmarie Köckenberger was working as part of the interdisciplinary creative team Balestra Berlin. Featuring an outdoor eating area furnished with vintage pieces and gingham tablecloths, the space is perfect for sunny days. Filled with sweets, coffee, pretzels, beer, homemade cakes, pickles, dog food, international magazines, underwear, nail polish and fresh free-range eggs, Kjosk can be driven to a new location in no time.

A laid-back, self-service facility, vistors to Kjosk simply board the bus, pick their food and beverage of choice and then select a space to relax by the unusual facility. During bad weather, people can seat upstairs while enjoying the high garden’s view. Kids and adults are invited to play with their white Lego blocks, vintage Atari or puzzles. The wild shabby garden features lots of makeshift seats, plants growing on re-purposed objects and even a ping-pong table, making the project much more than “just a normal kiosk”.
