MUVBOX Concept Shipping Container resturant
Hard to believe but when it opens-up in under a minute and transforms into a restaurant, a pop-up store or an art gallery, you'll believe it. It's called MUVBOX because it can be moved. Since it is not set permanently in the ground, there is no need for building permits. It can be dropped anywhere, with relative ease, without a large truck cabin lingering around taking up space. Daily opening and closing and table set-up is simple. And the whole container can be easily transported by road, rail or sea.
Created out of an old shipping container and powered by solar energy, this application of the MUVBOX concept in Old-Montreal is a modern-day reinvention of the old-fashioned canteen. Each night the MUVBOX vanishes back into its cube, and redeploys early the next morning at the touch of a button, in less than two minutes!
