Short Bus Retro | By Winkelman Architecture

Over the years we have showcased many adventure vehicles, but nothing as special as this, an old-school bus converted into a camper. Restored to perfection by Winkleman Architecture for a client, the 1959 Chevrolet Viking short bus can safely carry 12 passengers, converting to guest quarters for two with two single beds, or joined in the center as a queen bed. The design aesthetic was inspired by the mid-century, and has a charming 60′s, hippy-chic feel, executed with an arts and crafts approach. The sixties vibe is complete with plumbing, power, and a funky interior including a beautiful pine floor, multi-colored beads, tassel lamps and Moroccan-style prints. The end result is a cozy cottage on wheels for unique family forays into the wilderness.

VICTOR BIKE

Victor Bike is a concept created by designer Christophe Robillard of Montreal. A great design that stands out by its unique frame. In a very minimalist approach the frame consists of a single tube that is bent to connect to the back wheel. Christophe says: "I created an object which harmonizes with the townscape while respecting the charisma and the dignity of the cyclist: such values I hold dearly."...
