The furniture, music and lighting can be adjusted online in real-time and you can see how the customers react.

This pop-up café in Helsinki, Finland, features elements that can be remotely controlled in real-time online. It was built to demonstrate the importance of good design; to show that design affects everyone and that anyone can affect it.

Creative studio Perfect Fools and agency Hasan & Partners are the ones behind ‘Kauko‘ (Finnish for ‘remote control'), which at first may look like a normal café but has lighting, music, tables, chairs and more that can be controlled on a website. For example, an online visitor can choose to adjust the height of a chair and watch how the customer sitting on it reacts via multiple live-streaming cameras.
