KIOSK


How many times have you thought about the design of the things you use in your everyday life? Do you buy stuff cause of its wrapping or presentation? Do you prefer simple tags? Are you part of the club who thinks "Less is More"?

If you answered yes to any of these questions, you will love KIOSK.

Two years ago, husband and wife team Alisa and Marco opened their store in the heart of Soho (N.Y.C.). Kiosk: An independent stand from which merchandise is sold, often placed in the common area of a shopping center. They offer a range of products from all over the world, one country at a time. The featured country changes approximately every four to five months. Everything in the store is sourced during travels and their currently featured country is Germany.

"We opened Kiosk to offer an antidote to over-design. We consider the objects we stock to be humble, straightforward and beautiful for their simplicity and directness. Often they are traditional goods that have been developed over generations or anonymous design found in general stores, DIYs and kiosks: products designed not around one personality but the result of local aesthetics and needs. Their beauty is sometimes hard to see in today’s over-saturated / over-hyped market; our motivation to start Kiosk was to shed some light on their quiet perfection."
