German designer Cornelius Comanns has converted a Piaggio APE 50 three-wheeled delivery vehicle, a cheap and fuel efficient platform. He tells Designboom: '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 andspontaneous way.' '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. While it appears possible to do laundry and cook, there is no information regarding washroom and toilet facilities. More at Designboom.
