benedetto bufalino turns old caravan into mobile swimming pool

summer lovers across the world rejoice, as french artist benedetto bufalino has just unveiled his latest car-turned-into-something project: a mobile pool caravan. in perfect timing with summer, the curious piece not only provides refreshing dips but also the possibility of driving it around across the open road, bringing the pool party to any hot location.

to transform the old camping trailer into a movable swimming pool, benedetto bufalino removed the roof, emptied the interiors and retrofitted the body of the car in order for it to hold the water. a ladder has been placed on the back of the vehicle, allowing people to jump into the pool. this is not the first time bufalino turns old cars into functional objects; earlier this month the french artist hacked an old ford mondeo into a fully functional wood-burning pizza oven.

  • Where are the people that were complaining about that “Pizza Oven Van” post of last week? Only difference here is that the title is the normal db format instead of something from a fb ad.
