A Crate Show Of Versatility!

September 5, 2013

Recently we have been doing a lot of research into creating a pop up concept for the winter using shipping crates. With the amount of import / export and construction going on in Dubai, shipping pallets or crates are in plentiful supply, during our research we came across today’s awesome sustainable and eco friendly feature project.

The Urban Coffee Farm and Brew Bar is based in Melbourne, Australia and was conceptualized by international design firm, HASSELL. The project was designed for the 2013 Melbourne Food and Wine Festival and as the name would suggest, it is indeed a coffee farm with over 120 coffee trees used in the project. But for us this project and the images below show us the awesome versatility that the humble crate has.

As you can see below it has been used to create architectural structure, furniture, signage and storage, this versatility is the main reason, along with the sustainability factor as to why crates are the go to material for anyone looking to create a green, sustainable and multifunctional pop up whilst still looking super cool!
