From Shopping Cart to Art Studio


Lukas Ewing

ENDS 401

Designed to function as a portable art studio, this project transforms a Wanzl D185 RC shopping trolley into a fold-up desk. The structure intimately sits the artist and the client, providing a space for consultations and solo work. Yielding various amounts of protection, an adjustable canopy can be applied to the frame to respond to different weather conditions while simultaneously suggesting distinct levels of invitation and interaction with the artist. All of the components fit into the basket of the cart, allowing it to easily disassemble and get pushed to its next destination.
