HASSEL Architects’ quirky portable food truck is nominated for the WAF Shopping Award
This food truck designed by architects at the local branch of Hassell and based on a Japanese market model popped up in the evenings around Melbourne during last year’s State Of Design Festival. Melburnians guessed at its whereabouts via Twitter and Facebook and, once they located it, claimed food and sake prepared by a local noodle bar.
Based on a commercial truck, it has its own independent structure which supports the disguising wall panels and equipment including refrigerators, yakatori grill, induction hobs and kitchen equipment. When last heard of, it was offered for sale as a mobile fast food facility.
