illy's Shipping Container Cafe


With a single button press this shipping container folds out into a fully-furnished cafe. Designed by Adam Kalkin and sponsored by coffee gadgets company illy, the entire unit will be on display between November 28th and December 29th at the Time Warner Center in New York. Stop by and you may even be able to score a free cup of espresso. (I would warn you that the toilet is just for looks.)

Adam Kalkin has built many different living spaces based on shipping containers. Having just started watching Season 2 of The Wire, I am finding it all very disturbing.

The Cool Hunter has several more pictures and details about Kalkin's work.
