While on holiday in Napier, New Zealand the other week, I stumbled across this. An Airstream trailer turned into a coffee cart for the Silver Bullet Coffee Company.
The cart opened in November 2013, and although the caravan it’s built around dates to 1976, it’s an Airstream – which makes it pure mid-century. Post-deco, but definitely not Swedish Modern or 1970s kitsch. I am a huge, huge fan of mid-twentieth century stylings – especially the streamline shapes that defined the age. Call it dieselpunk. Thoughts?
