Mathieu Lehanneur’s WiFi stations

Mathieu Lehanneur WiFi StationI’m looking for a new place to work.  My old beloved cafe recently closed and the new tenants are rather adamantly anti-WIFI.  It is a sentiment I find slightly outrageous if you want to make it in the neighborhood cafe category — it is enough to make me wish for the failure of this local business (did I say that? yes I did, I am already annoyed with them).   Am I being a pain in the butt who just misses her old hang out, or do we have a right to WiFi?

Keeping with my French inspiration for the day….what do you think of these WiFi stations by French designer Mathieu Lehanneur and sponsored by outdoor advertising company JCDecaux?  I don’t think I can get a delicous breakfast burrito and a coffee there, but I do like the idea of sitting in a bustling outdoor garden in Paris to get my work done.

One Response to Mathieu Lehanneur’s WiFi stations

  1. Rochelle-
    Even here in my newly NORMAL-ized state, the right to universal WiFi comes somewhere below the rights to universal broadband and health care. However, you, being of the entrepeneurial bent, could conceivably whip together a seed pavilion, vegi stand and coffee shop with WiFi based in a food truck. I can just see going to the SBA for a loan with that as a business brief.
    I wonder how long it will take for an enterprising individual to put together an espresso & Croque Monsieur (madame would require too much equipment) cart that could outrun le gendarmes. IMHO, Paris suffers from a shortage of food carts. No doubt the Surly Cafe Waiters Union has something to do with that.
    Apologies, I may have had just one too many wee cups of coffee today.

How to Make Amazing Spring Containers with Detroit Garden Works

Spring planters are going in everywhere here in New England this week. While I know that down south you are probably way past the daffodils and forsythia, it is barely beginning here. I asked the very talented Deborah Silver (a fellow northerner) of Detroit Garden Works for some ideas for spring planters and she sent…

A Birth Announcement, My Weekend and My Homework

So I had a bit of an eventful weekend….besides getting 90% of my garden in the ground, which involved expanding the current area by almost double, removing mature shrubs and lots of cleanout (my body hurts), our new baby keets arrived.   Yes, I have a birth announcement for you. We are still working on names…it…

She believes gardens can reuse, reinvent and reflect contemporary culture.” Here is a very nice before and after…and also a couple of…
