From their studios in Berlin and Vienna, Maciej Chmara and Ania Rosinke design, direct and execute objects, interiors and pop-ups from concept through to creation.
During #INTERIEUR18, they will showcase their take on a quintessential kiosk as part of the 'Landmarks' series. "We want to talk about the history of the kiosk and its role in urban structure. Besides the commercial consumption of information, the kiosk has always been a hub for gossip and a local meeting place." Chmara.Rosinke strives to combine craftsmanship with a conceptual and ecological approach, realizing both commissioned and self-initiated projects. Many of their works are inspired by functional and socio-cultural aspects: "The owner of a kiosk was a well-informed person, always in the know about what was going on in his or her neighbourhood. Our installation will evoke this process of unfolding and opening in an architectural sense, while revealing information about the kiosk itself to the audience by adding a booklet that gathers photos, quotes, stories, articles, ... about the use of kiosks."
