Once symbols of a bustling city, the newsstands of Chicago were defunct when non-profit organization e.a.t. Spots (education, agriculture, technology) reinvented them as kiosks for selling fresh food. But these 45 sq. ft. newsstands were designed to sell papers, not perishables, so Delphi was given the challenge of retrofitting them into food retail outlets.
HOW WE SOLVED IT
We dismantled the newspaper and magazine racks and started with clean empty shells. Next, we built refrigerator units into custom cabinets, scaled to fit the size and functionality of the kiosks. Electricity also had to be redone. Finally, we added changeable graphic panels to the new painted wood structures for even more versatility.
