The Bouroullec Brothers present Kiosque for a limited time in Parisian gardens
Designed by Ronan & Erwan Bouroullec, the Kiosques are two modular pavillons commissioned by Emerige with the Galerie kreo that will be donated to the City of Paris to be used for social and cultural projects. The Kiosques can be visited until November 5th in the Jardin des Tuileries in Paris.
Their construction was built like an urban furniture: Kiosque can be easily transported on a truck and assembled in three hours. “Our idea was to create an itinerant and versatile platform that could welcome different kinds of events,” say the brothers.
Exhibiting a modular, rectangular unit with a broad roof that amply overhangs the wall, creating a sheltered external terrace illuminated by hanging lamps, the roof can fold into itself in two-panel sections, which can then be stacked and moved on a trailer. Sliding panels along both of the Kiosque’s long sides can be pulled back to expose the windows, or closed in order to completely ‘shut’ the unit.
The Kiosques have been manufactured by the Ateliers of La Machine in Nantes, France.
