The Bluetube Bar was built by the Portuguese design collective DOSE for the Queima das Fitas do Porto festival. Made from low-cost materials, the temporary outdoor structure is wrapped in the blue tubing commonly used for construction work. The design inspires other structures made from low-cost materials, which could be reclaimed or recycled, and the tubing also causes the pop-up bar to emit interesting light effects at night as it is illuminated from within.
