The tiles in the kitchen area with its smooth surface, softly romantic hue and gentle marble effect veining, matt Bistro grey hexagon tile recalls the bohemian glamour of a Parisian brasserie. Its classically French aesthetic will bring the flavor of 1800s Art Nouveau styling to the van and create a striking pattern using the versatile hexagonal shape for a statement feature wall.

For this design, we look to Charles Rennie Mackintosh a Scottish architect, designer, water colourist and artist. His artistic approach had much in common with European Symbolism. His work, alongside that of his wife Margaret Macdonald, was influential on European design movements such as Art Nouveau and Secessionism and praised by great modernists such as Josef Hoffmann. Mackintosh was born in Glasgow and died in London. He is known for much but his offerings on the philosophy of life and art are memorable, He offered “There is hope in honest error; none in the icy perfections of the mere stylist” and “Life is the leaves which shape and nourish a plant, but art is the flower which embodies its meaning”

Regarding Japanese style – This style was admired by Mackintosh because of its restraint and economy of means rather than ostentatious accumulation; its simple forms and natural materials rather than elaboration and artifice; and its use of texture and light and shadow rather than pattern and ornament. In the old western style, furniture was seen as ornament that displayed the wealth of its owner; the value of the piece was established according to the length of time spent creating it. In the Japanese arts furniture and design focused on the quality of the space, which was meant to evoke a calming and organic feeling to the interior. – What an inspirational pair He and his Wife were.

The van is designed to be an off-grid machine and comes with all you would expect and need for trips away. Solar and relays right through to gas management and more. You can monitor the levels via Bluetooth on your phone or tablet through an app. The highest safety standards have been adhered to throughout this build so you can rest assured that you and your family are in for one great ride.
