Although we’ve seen quite a few cool caravan conversions, Swedish studio Snask‘s latest project brings music to our ears and color to our eyes. The innovative designers have converted an old camper into a vibrant mobile music studio — all for a very worthwhile cause. The project is in collaboration with Turning Tables, a nonprofit organization that builds creative spaces so that refugee children around the world have a place where they can express themselves through music.
Founded by Danish DJ Martin Jakobsen, Turning Tables first began its work with refugees in New York, where it ran a program to teach kids how to DJ. The nonprofit program has since gone global, with teams of artists and musicians building spaces for kids to express themselves through music and other art forms.
Not satisfied with their many brick and mortar locations around the world, the Turning Tables team decided to go on tour around Sweden. To do so, however, they knew they needed a more efficient way to travel with their music equipment. Looking for solutions, they contacted the innovative creatives behind Snask to ask for help in designing a tiny music studio on wheels that would help them travel further to reach more kids.
Once they found an old caravan for sale, the renovation project kicked off with the help of several artists and friends. The rundown camper was completely gutted, removing all of its moldy furnishings and replacing its wooden structure.
The resulting design is a fantastically vibrant music studio, complete with turntables. Of course, the pièce de résistance is the soft pink fur used to line the walls and help with sound insulation. With the help of artists Fabrizio Morra, Rasmus Linderos and Enrike Puerto, the exterior of the camper was painted with a bold pattern of colors and shapes that perfectly reflect the project’s mission.
