DROP Mobile Eco-Hotel Goes XL

April 30, 2014 at 9:19 AM | by | ()

When In-Tenta Creative Design Group came up with mobile eco-hotel DROP a few years ago, we loved its design, environmental friendliness, and ability to be installed pretty much anywhere.

We’re still waiting for someone to pick up the idea and turn it into reality, but with summer arriving and festival season around the corner, DROP now has a big brother – DROP XL – which we think is the perfect answer to leaking tents, deflating air mattresses, and shared bathrooms.

Increasing the pod’s footprint to 30 sq m (323 sq ft), the entrance and outdoor deck are shifted to the side. Two large wooden sliding doors open up, rather than the spherical windows before, but they are still incorporated in the design, as is the skylight that runs across the roof. Inside, you find a (day) bed, little sitting area, and full bathroom, with what looks like the possibility of an actual bathtub in the above rendering.

Aside from use as a hotel room, it’s not hard to imagine DROP being adapted as an event space, pop-up store, mobile restaurant, or something else creative. Check out further details, including a short video, here. Now will someone be bold and create DROP so we can stay the night?
