Bike your house around


As any European can tell you, nothing says “Dutch” more than caravans … except bicycles. And so it was bound to happen that somebody would try and combine the two. That somebody was design agency Reggs’ Thijs Bouman, whose Fietscaravan reached the final round of design competition Het Beste Idee van Nederland last year. Two of these trailers can be connected to form a double bed. For something so small this looks mighty comfortable to me, although I could use some pockets for books and a reading light at the head end.

You can view this trailer and many, many modern bikes at the Designhuis exhibition Fiets, from June 22 to October 5 in Eindhoven. Via Trendhunter, which has also got photos of the bicycle roller coaster that anybody can try at the exhibition.
