The London Weekender is an envelope-like aluminum fixture to transform
otherwise unusable moving spaces.
During the week London is crawling with trucks equipped with caged enclosures for removal services and deliveries. These services are required less over the weekends and therefore a lot of these vehicles are left unused. The concept of the London-Weekender is to utilise the downtime of these carriers and convert them into something profitable and unique.
The "envelopes" can be unfolded in very short period of time and are adjustable to fit varying cage sizes.
The inner surface is covered with a CNC cut plywood layer. The inner facade, once adjusted to the enclosed space, has built-in seats and tables that fold out.
Once installed, the envelopes become temporary platforms for weekend usage. Rented out in combination with the truck, they can be used, decorated and equipped to personal preference. For those who prefer to hire a fully equipped Weekender (as displayed in the images) have the option of:
- artificial grass floor, furnished with plants and a hammock.
- sand floor and pool
- dance floor with disco ball
Rented out individually or in groups for larger events, the London-Weekender quickly adapts
to create momentary spaces for events all over the London area.
