Transportable Restaurant

Parisian architect Pascal Grasso, commissioned by Electrolux, has designed a temporary, transportable restaurant on the roof of Le Palais de Tokyo museum in Paris. The glass box with perforated metal cladding is even more eye-catching at night through the use of colour changing LED lights. Book in with your 11 closest friends for a dinner to remember! Truly Amazing.

And another pop-up store... Josh Goot

Sydney designer Josh Goot has opened a great temporary store on Oxford Street featuring pieces from his latest collection as well as past collections. Based on the theme of the A/W 2009 collection: Stone.... think gravel scattered on the floor, a large chunk of concrete in the window and a large scale projection of abstract images of various formations make you wish this store was around for longer than just four days! 443 Oxford St, Paddington NSW Thur Jul 8 to Sun Jul 11, 10am-6pm

Not just another Pop-Up Store

Stella McCartney is the latest designer to venture into the popular pop-up store trend with a great concept recently popping up in Galleries Lafayette, Paris. Her designer, Giles Miller, has created a high-impact store with 2 metre high 3D cardboard letters featuring gold leaf edging. The cardboard cubes made by laminating corrugated cardboard in different directions and slicing through the layers resulting in a textured checkerboard pattern. The pop-up will soon move to Selfridges in London, where it will be on show for the two weeks.
