The Cube

This sounds delicious. The Cube will open this March 31, allowing diners to eat in a moveable pavillion at unexpected locations across Europe. The first stop will be in Brussels, atop the Parc du Cinquantenaire. 

Two of the semi-transparent and transparent structures have been created and will later venture through Italy, Russia, Switzerland and Sweden – but only for four to 12 weeks in each location. 

The Cube, commissioned by Electrolux, can seat 18 diners in the 140 sq m interior. The open space has a visible kitchen and one single table that can disappear when raised into the ceiling, creating a lounge area for post-dining relaxation. 

Outside, a 50 sq m terrace will offer what promises to be stunning views – wherever they may be. International chefs will take turns cooking in The Cube kitchen for patrons lucky enough to snag a seat.

The structures have been designed for easy assembly and take-down, like exhibition stands. They're also eco-friendly and require low energy use.   text via
