‘bufalino’ interior view

‘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.

  • I bet that thing smells absolutely horrid after a couple of days.

    Huh?
  • I would dearly love to import and distribute these into my country. I believe they would answer the problem of homelessness for many single older people, who have an income, yet nowhere to live. The main reasons are lack of affordable housing, and the cost of rentals, but something like the Buffalino would provide many with a roof over their heads, which would cost much less per week than rental accommodation. There are also serviced camping sites within most towns and cities offering ablution blocks and social amenities. With the growing population, I foresee a time when these forms of accommodation will be the norm.

  • A modern wheelie bin for the disposal of humans, save big expense on funerals, but dont leave it on the driveway, some sh!t brained council worker will fine you for leaving it out overnight.

    Millions of them here in India, we could do with having them in the big cities & reduce the amount of cars, they are brill for getting around town and zipping in & out of heavy traffic, bring em on.

  • Brilliant design concept. The three wheel design works very well in North America as it qualifies as a motor cycle thus not having to qualify as a car. It wouldn’t be to bad being homeless if I could afford on of these guys. A step up from http://www.tonystrailers.com/mobileshelter/.
