The Mobile Art Kitchen
Sweet Street has collaborated with a group of artists to create the Mobile Art Kitchen, an innovative food truck with two missions: sharing Sweet Street’s bakery-centric American cuisine with the world, and supporting the arts.
Inside our vehicle, delicious delicacies rarely seen in Europe can be found, such as lobster popovers, stuffed pretzels and gourmet “M.A.K. n’ Cheese.” Meanwhile the exterior of the truck is equipped with three different projection spaces and two LCD screens, perfect for showing visual art, screening movies or using as advertisement space.
In addition to creative American cuisine and the advancement of art, the Mobile Art Kitchen advocates forward thinking technology and ecological consciousness. The M.A.K. has installed solar panels to power mobile phone charging stations for our diners, uses packaging that is either 100% recycled or biodegradable instead of Styrofoam and plastic, incorporates local products whenever possible to offset carbon emissions and chooses organic as much as we can to help protect our planet from pesticides and non-sustainable farming. It is a concept created for the love of food & art by artists and foodies. We are excited to share it with you! Visit mobileartkitchen.com to learn more and to find out where we will be next!
I started the Mobile Art Kitchen (M.A.K.) with a team of artists, videographers and designers from France who brainstormed alongside me and helped author the concept. It was a wild, wild development process, stimulated by a room full of emotional artists. If you know anything about me, my life or Sweet Street, you’ll understand that it is all one long passionate design project. So M.A.K. was a natural evolution of who we are as a company.
Ultimately, M.A.K.is more than just a delicious destination, we combine digital media, video and sound with visually exciting images and yummy American centric food, creating an engagingly, interactive grazing experience. To that end we ensured it was designed in a way that would allow it to continue to morph and innovate on itself over time…thus the media screen sitting atop the truck was born. I’ll give you an example of one of our interactive projects, it is called, “Making the World a Sweeter Place,” where we capture our customers’ ideas, in film or print, on how they (or we) make the world sweeter, through the Power of Good Food Shared.
