‘bufalino’ by german industrial designer cornelius comanns is a small camper
which is equipped to meet the basic needs of one person. the concept behind the project
is to offer absolute flexibility during periods of travel. the minimalist construction is based
on the existing piaggio APE 50 three wheeled light transport vehicle; a model chosen for its
economic and fuel efficient benefits. however, the more complex structural components
such as the frame, the chassis, and engine are derived from the original piaggio model.
‘my aim was to give people a better understanding of the country, the surrounding,
and the range they have travelled. the travelling vehicle is always with you like some
kind of a base camp, while also being used for moving on in an easygoing and
spontaneous way. ‘ -CC
‘bufalino’ encourages users to explore the surrounding off beaten tracks. meanwhile
the furnished interior consisting of a bed, two seating units, a cooking zone, a basin,
storage space, a water tank and a refrigerator offers the comforts of a home.
