DiffBox is a modular urban cabin. It provides a cool and shady seating area when it’s nice & sunny. It adds an interesting volume to an otherwise plain area. The structure provides some amount of intimacy while not completely closing the space it sits in, thus facilitating social interaction. During events, the cabin can be used as kiosk, bar, lunch or chillout zone. To keep the cabin dry on a rainy day, a tarp or tarpaulin is spun over the roof. The system is composed of modules for various purposes :
- plain (multi purpose)
Modular by design
Each module is made of 4 connected metal sheets, shaped into their respective form. The material is powder coated using a protective paint. The modules are connected to each other using a simple screwing mechanism allowing for a rapid deployment. In combination with its rails, the cabin can even be installed on non solid grounds.
