Mobile Hospitality: Designed To Celebrate and Enjoy Public Space

Ania Rosinke and Maciej Chmara developed Mobile Hospitality to discuss the nature of public space.

On the one hand it does not belong to anyone, on the other hand it belongs to all, but it is merely used by us actively, as it was in former times. It has decreased to the background of our everyday activities. Responsibility for the outdoor space, for most of the residents stops at their garden fence. The project mobile hospitality starts just here.

They have designed a mobile kitchen, dining table and seating for ten that that they can move from place to place, inviting passers-by to join them. "At this big table, design meets delight and generates a very good opportunity to get to know each other."

It happens to be fun:

An important aim for our design process was to bring a smile to people passing by and to communicate with very basic means the sensuality and delight of food-culture.
All the objects are foldable and mobile.

Unlike most food carts, everything is open and visible, with pots for growing spices, a foot pump for running water and a watering/can drain for gray water recovery.
