In Helsinki, a Remote-Controlled, Interactive Coffee Shop

This Might Give a Whole New Meaning to the Phrase 'Internet Cafe'

Published on .

Creative studio Perfect Fools and design company GP UdstillningsDesign, built "Kauko," a remote-controlled cafe inside a Helsinki mall.

The interior of Kauko, which means remote control in Finnish, can be manipulated by anybody logging onto heights, music, lights and almost everything else can be changed, which makes for an interesting way to shake up regular coffee routines.

The pop-up project is part of a wider campaign that celebrates Helsinki as the "World's Design Capital" for 2012.
