Illy Cafe - Push Button Container House.

Illy Cafe - Push Button Container House.

Designed by Adam Kalkin and along with coffee gadgets company Illy, the entire unit (shipping container) with a single button folds out into a fully-furnished cafe. The Quick House at the 52nd Venice Biennale was used to provide visitors a space to relax and to enjoy their complimentary espresso by Italian espresso company Illy. Apart from this Adam Kalkin has built many different living spaces based on shipping containers.
