Cable Car Vending Machine

What do you do with an old gondola cabin? Turn it into art and everyday home items of course!

As part of the Verbiers Mountain Climber project, these gondolas will be on display at a charity event called Design Miami in Basel from June 10-17. In total, there will be 40 cabins that are transformed from boring passenger old cabins into decorative, fancy home furnishings.

The brainchild of this project are three entrepreneurs Inès Flammarion, Nicolas Bernheim and Albert Schrurs.

Ultimately, these cabins will be auctioned off at Christies and the money received will be donated to Switzerland’s Make-A-Wish Foundation.
