the "Peperbus"


When I saw this strange column I immediately thought of the Morris columns in Paris, those 4m2 cylindrical outdoor sidewalk structures with a characteristic style that are used for advertising and other purposes.

It is in fact an old electrical transformer column, the type of which is not in use anymore for more than 20 years. This one was re-designed as a piece of art by Griffinkommer. Behind, a modern office building.

So the German Litfass columns are known as Morris columns in France, good to know. ;D

All cities should have transformers as beautiful as that one! Lovely.
