IDS11: Steel Space Shipping Container Display Unit Solves A Big Problem Images credit Lloyd Alter Trade show and event booths are a difficult design problem. There are the quick and mobile display systems that fold up into barrels and all look pretty similar and pretty tacky; I used to do shows when I worked in prefab and could set up in under an hour with a prefab display. Then there are the site-built demountable booths that a lot of companies use, where I have seen crews working 24 hours straight putting together a complex 3D booth. There seemed to be nothing in between. When I first saw Steelspace's empty box on Inhabitat I was not particularly impressed, but when I saw a more complex model in place at the Interior Design Show , I was. It combines the speed of the booth in a barrel with the wow factor of a site-built booth. View the entire comment thread.
