for the occasion of FIAC – the international contemporary art fair – held in paris, the bouroullec brothers have been commissioned by french real estate developer emerige to realize a compact and unique retail space ‘kiosque 2015’. based on the grounds of the tuileries gardens with kengo kuma’s yure pavilion emerging from the distance, the designer duo has erected a standalone unit, modular and with the adaptable option of being to be assembled and re-assembled at different locations and uses.

the construction was built like a piece of urban furniture, the idea was to create an itinerant and versatile platform that could welcome different kinds of events. a modular, rectangular unit with a broad roof that amply overhangs the wall, creating a sheltered external terrace illuminated by hanging lamps. furthermore, the roof can fold into itself in two-panel sections, which can then be stacked and moved on a trailer.
