Kensington & Chelsea Council’s deputy leader Daniel Moylan commissioned architect Thomas Heatherwick to design a new newspaper kiosk. The brief was to design a kiosk that is "distinctive and ergonomic. The solution was a cold-patinated bronze-clad kiosk with a mild steel and plywood frame and a glass fibre roof floating over a polycarbonate clerestory window" as reported in this week's Building Design.
It has a beehive feel to it.
They have recently been positioned by Earl's Court tube and Sloane Square. We showcased the kiosk at the Exhibition Road Festival as part of the London Festival of Architecture last year.
