rent a box
Rent a Box is a vending machine for public space that tries to reinterpret the concept of automatic vending.
Nowadays vending machines look more or less all the same. The shapes are mostly squarish and conservative. This project is about distributing things. People should start to interfere and interact. The concept also looks into the consuming habits and tries to reflect critically on this behaviour. Designing an interactive vending machine for public space that distributes self-made crafts or objects which people do not need anymore. It is an opportunity for people to exchange things in an easy way – comparable with sale boxes in front of farms. The vending machine has a touchscreen where people can buy or try to rent a box- selling or buying at anytime without dependency, this is what makes vending machines so attractive.
