After more than a year in which the lockdowns caused by the pandemic have placed limits on the freedom to travel, the desire to escape without constraints of accommodation is stronger than ever. Starting from here Renault Design he wanted to imagine a flexible and safe way of traveling starting from the new Trafic to create a modular show-car suitable for any need of nomadic life. It was born with these premises Hippie Caviar Hotel, a completely new space on wheels, practical and ready for any type of escape.
Hippie Caviar Hotel presents the stylistic features of the new Renault Trafic design with a more marked and expressive front. It consists of a cabin in the front, finished in a shade of teal called “AlmondFlakes”, and a room in the back in “Anodised Silver Gray”. The design is inspired by the rooms of 5-star hotels, refined and rich in natural materials. The wicker-effect dashboard is embellished with a leather band. The use of materials, such as exotic wood, natural fibers (linen and wool) and vegetable foam, is a strong reference to nature. Japanese “washi” paper effect paints add an architectural and contemporary style. The colors and materials embody the optimism and freedom of the 1960s, when travel was immersed in a world of fresh yet controlled, invigorating and relaxing colors.
Renault’s travel show car delivers a bench that converts into a very comfortable bed (145cm x 195cm) which can be placed outside or inside the vehicle. In the “contemplation” position, the open hatch and its curtains offer privacy and protection from the elements. In the “cozy” position, the bench and the corner armchair create a lounge area. The roof terrace, complete with a small table and two removable backrests, offers another view of the surrounding environment. The roof is accessed by a removable staircase. Hippie Caviar Hotel offers a “selected” experience with services worthy of a 5-star hotel: for example, the delivery of a logistic container (shower, toilet, electric charging point, etc.) at the location chosen by the customer, services of concierge to be ordered online with delivery by drone on the roof or on the counter in the “contemplation” position. Not to mention the additional services such as the provision of bicycles. Every detail has been considered to deliver a 5-star camper experience at a time when demand is exploding.
