Kauko featured on BBC News

February 10th, 2012, Press

Not enough that our latest creation Kauko, the Internet-controlled café, is featured by both Creativity and AdAge today – it also appeared on the BBC News this past weekend. You can view the clip here.

Kauko is an initiative that lets people explore the importance of design. At youdesign.fi you can control furniture, service and atmosphere in the café, and then watch visitors react via multiple live-streaming cameras. You’ll quickly see what they like – and what they don’t. Perfect Fools and Hasan & Partners hope it all inspires new ideas about how to improve design in Helsinki, World Design Capital 2012.
