Adam Kalkin’s Quik House, a push button concept that transforms a metal shipping container into a fully furnished space with the press of a button, is set to make its US debut in New York’s Time Warner Center soon. A huge hit at the 52nd Venice Biennale, Kalkin’s idea will take the form of a pop-up illy coffeeshop, turning a seemingly ordinary streetside metal box into a sleek, fully furnished cafe with tables, chairs, and a coffeebar in less time than it takes to brew a cup. The house featured at the Biennale included a kitchen, dining room, bathroom, bedroom, living room and library, all made from recycled or recyclable materials, that unfolded in 90 seconds.
