Coffee kiosk by PUDDLE, Kyoto – Japan

October 12th, 2016 by retail design blog

This compact coffee kiosk measures only 20 square meters and was realized for the International Modern Arts Festival which took place at the Kyoto City Art Museum. The arabica coffee designed by Tokyo-based Studio PUDDLE was created to visually complement the Art Exhibition.

The translucent exterior – made from a combination of aluminum and polycarbonate – was developed to reference a greenhouse. The temporary structure employs straightforward techniques for set up and taking down, this element combined with its lightweight material allows for it to be reinstalled at a diverse range of locations.

“I imagined the contrast between the museum’s serene space, and the kiosk in a bed of white gravel, would be the perfect setting for one to enjoy an unforgettable cup of coffee” comments the architect. “As a matter of fact, there was an request to set up this kiosk in a different location during this time, and we were able to accommodate this since the deconstruction, removal, and re-installation took just one day to complete.”
