CUBE is versatile pavilion designed by Italian studio Park Associati for Electrolux, which offers unique and exclusive cooking and dining experience. Following is some information by the designer, “The Cube dining with a view is a pavilion designed to house an itinerant restaurant commissioned by Electrolux. The interior of the Cube has been designed to suit different arrangements; the pavilion consists of a large open-planned space with a visible kitchen and a single large table that can be made to disappear by raising it up to the ceiling to form a lounge area for use after eating.
The Cube has been conceived as a module that can be put up and taken down relatively easily, one that suits all climatic conditions, even the most extreme, while always expressing the maximum in living comfort with its refined aesthetics and use of high-quality materials. The construction has the lightness and versatility of an exhibition stand yet with the design complexity of a building.
It uses materials that are highly innovative in terms of technology, eco-sustainability and energy saving as well as enabling constant re-use. The pavilion’s lightness of form is emphasized on the exterior by its white color and given a sense of movement through the use of an aluminum skin that has been laser-cut to create a texture with a geometric design that covers the whole of the outer surface.
The base of the building, slightly raised with respect to the ground, accentuates the idea of lightness and the cleanness of form that characterize the entire structure. Inside, more highly advanced technological solutions can be found in the lighting, heating, sound system and of course, the Electrolux’s futuristic kitchen equipment.”
