Going to the revolution on three wheels

My aim was to give people a better understanding of the country, the surroundings, 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

Is it possible to realize an RV, a camper van based on an Italian Piaggio Ape 50? It would seem so! The answer is called Bufalino, a mini camper designed by German designer Cornelius Comanns who revolutionized the Ape 50 inside and out.

An economic base, of course, but also surprising for its dynamic capabilities and its legendary reliability. Indeed, Comanns gave the vehicle an even cuter style, while the interior was designed to meet the needs and demands of a single person.

The Bufalino is equipped with a refrigerator, a stove, a bed, two chairs, a sink and a computer station. Basically, there is only one thing missing....a bathroom!

A small addition: a special edition custom made ​​for Archilovers!

This would be probably the perfect way to travel, discovering the most popular projects (like Casa Corallo, the most beloved of all time):

    L'idea di realizzare un "Guscio mobile" basandosi sul minimalismo ed il risparmio è già di per se un'idea geniale, se poi ci aggiungi che la fervida mente che ha elaborato tale progetto è di un Lazzarotto, il tutto assume un sapore di pura GENIALITA' !! Nel complesso è tutto FANTASTICO, complimenti di cuore!!! :---)))) Arch. Ettore Lazzarotto - Roma
