Old telephone booths converted into aquariums

With the proliferation of mobile phones, street telephone booths have become relics of a less convenient era—artist Benedetto Bufalino and designer Benoit Deseille are collaborating on a project that turns these neglected structures into objects of interest again.


Filling out the insides of these booths with water, they converted these almost-obsolete facilities into delightful outdoor aquariums that add touches of whimsy to the streets.


The first aquarium booth debuted back in 2007, but these public art installations were most recently seen at the Lumiere Festival in Durham, UK, last month.


The pretty blue water and colorful fishes in these old telephone booths prompted passers-by to stop in admiration—at night, they look even more stunning with their ethereal glowing lights.
