Designers Anna Rosinke and Maciej Chmara of Kollectiv Stadtpark have been touring Austria, making friends with locals in the street at their mobile kitchen table.
The Mobile Gastfreundschaft (mobile hospitality) comprises a kitchen unit with sink and gas hob, a separate sideboard and a long table with stools.
They're made from standard sections of timber and each structure has a wheel at one end like a wheelbarrow.
Other outdoor kitchens on Dezeen include a cooking trolley by Studiomama and stall for cooking and selling pigs heads by Studio Swine.
The sharing of food, ritual dining and the communal kitchen were key themes in our acclaimed report on Food and Design - read it here.
Here are some more details from Kollectiv Stadtpark:
Mobile Gastfreundschaft (mobile hospitality)
The project mobile hospitality pays attention to an important aspect of the design work of collective stadtpark – the responsibility and the self-initiative in public space. The city, as space that does not belong to anyone, but at the same time to all. It is merely used by us actively, as it used to be in former times. It has decreased to the background of our everyday activities. Responsibility for the outdoor space, for most of the inhabitants stops at their garden fence. The project mobile hospitality starts just here.
Designers Anna Rosinke and Maciej Chmara drive with a wheelbarrow kitchen, table and ten folding stools from place to place to sit and eat in public space with spontaneously joining passers-by. At this big table, design meets delight and discussion and is a very good opportunity to get to know each other.
The project took place in Vaduz, Dornbirn, Bregenz and Feldkirch in summer and autumn 2011 and was initiated and supported by Art Design Feldkirch and Tschabrun Wood.
