Called blob vB3, the unit has a timber frame covered in a stretchy material and polyester. We’re not so certain how planet-loving polyester is, but the PUR insulation used in between the inner and outer shell certainly adds sustainability to the mix.

A fabulous example of minimalist, space-saving design, blob vB3 features all the ameneties the modern nomad needs: a kitchen, bathroom, guestroom, sleeping space, and loads of storage. And it is lit up with LED lights giving the versatile caravan something of a yolky nightime glow.

    Thanks forestmuir, I appreciate that. And will definitely look into that further.

    I dig the design and the compactness, but I couldn’t let a blanket statement about PUR insulation go without comment. The greenness, particularly in terms of Global Warming Potential (GWP), of polyurethane foam is entirely dependent on the blowing agent used. If the PUR used in this house was HFC-blown, it’s impact could offset the energy savings gleaned from using it. See for more information.

    That would be cool to have in my backyard for my kids to play in.
