living in a blob

blob-14

if this is the new mobile living space then i might be interested


this is blob vb3 from belgian architecture firm dvma, completed in 2009, it took 18 months to complete and is pretty much the coolest looking caravan i have ever seen. contructed mainly from polyester it comes complete with bathroom, kitchen, light, sleeping area and a shitload of storage space. almost completely self sufficient living environment, as long as there is a plug socket within reach although i guess you dont need electricity to scare the crap out of confused onlookers.
looking more like a ship from mork and mindy than a mobile home, the nose of the blob opens up to create a porch and i would love to see the caravaners faces when they wake up one morning to find this thing next to them. an addition of a window wouldnt have gone a miss but that might take away from the overall aesthetic of the thing. throw some flashing lights and a dry ice machine into this thing and im sold.

  1. love it! where can i get one? not sure about the comfort aspect of sleeping on a little shelf, or what 'being left on the shelf' every day would do for my self confidence but the rent must be cheap!

  2. Put me down for one as well!!!
    I'd like one next door to Jane's if at all possible!!!
    We could start a community of blobbers!!!
