Paris-based design team (and brothers) Ronan and Erwan Bouroullec have designed a sophisticated compact container structure that can be assembled in a mere three hours. Thanks to the Kiosque's fast assembly time and clean design, the compact container makes for a practical alternative to common urban building issues.
The Kiosque structure is made of powder-coated steel. Large windows on three sides and the light oak panels on the interior give the container a light, airy feel. Additionally, the overhanging roof adds the illusion of more space.
Although the modular Kiosque was commissioned by an urban developer looking for a temporary office space, the design is quite adaptive. As far as its potential for urban or humanitarian uses, the brothers maintain that the Kiosque’s best feature is its flexibility, “Ronan and I always look for strategy which is based on a certain freedom. Things are not definitive,” Erwan says. “So I feel quite relaxed about the use. It is something definitely movable.”
