URBAN MARKETEERS | POP-up mobile fruit stand
Location: Chicago- IL,USA – The Good Food Project
Activity : Public Furniture-Fruit Stand
Type: Competition [award winning]
The idea was to design a compact box which would be easy to transport and store. The minimal plywood chest slowly unfolds into a beautiful and inviting fruit stand. Ideally the design is capable of housing all the necessary equipment and accessories that might be needed to run the fruit stand, such as the fruit case, cash box, sunshades, for fruit and people, weight and even small stools for sitting.
Designed in Cyprus, built in Chicago.
On the 15th of May 2014 the Good Food Project launched the first fruit cart in a Chicago school. It was based on our award winning design and was built by master craftsman, Bill Heye.
The fruit cart is a gift to the students of Sullivan from the Good Food Project and the low-incidence program at Sullivan. All student groups are invited to use the fruit cart to sell fruit, instead of candy and junk food for fund-raising, snacking, and taking home to their families. Only high quality fruit, including locally grown (when available) will be sold from the cart.
