Since we last featured their fantastic spaces, the folks at WhiteCrate have been hard at work, this time converting former shipping containers into an exhibition site for the Nissan LEAF. Back in October the designers teamed up with the car manufacturer to tour their celebrated zero-emission electric car across Scandinavia. Dubbed FUTURE:TODAY, the exhibition has been showcasing some of the most pioneering exhibitors in the field of design within WhiteCrate’s adaptable structure, which can be moved around from city to city.
The interactive exhibition was designed to fully immerse the visitor in the innovative ideas of sustainable design, art, and architecture, and invited different artists and designers to participate. But the focus of the mobile exhibition was the zero-emission LEAF which took center stage.
As one of the world’s best-selling electric vehicles, the Nissan LEAF is particularly popular in the Norwegian capital of Oslo, which was the first site of the tour. After a week-long exhibition, the structure was packed up and moved on to the next city, Bergen, Stockholm, and eventually winging its way to Frankfurt, Germany.
Take a look at WhiteCrate’s official website for more of their converted containers!
