The “Design Within Reach” Airstream
By Brendan Moore
Since my wife does interior architecture and design, we get a lot of design magazines, which I don’t pay much attention too, generally. I like cars, she likes buildings and the stuff that goes in them.
However, the other day she showed me an Airsteam trailer that has to be one of the coolest-looking things you can tow behind a car that I’ve ever seen. It’s not one of the big Airstreams, but, man does it have style! And you can take a look at it on the website of Design Within Reach, a San Francisco-based design company that specializes in Modernist design.
I don’t know the design details of all the various items in the trailer, but the overall effect is one of visual continuity and space efficiency. I love this thing. It is a stainless-steel beauty. The photos on the website are not as good as the ones in the catalogue, because the photos are not large enough, but it’s worth checking out. The photos on DWR’s site are located here.
At $49,066 USD, I don’t know how many takers Airstream is going to have for the DWR model, but its got retro-chic oozing from every rivet, and from an auto enthusiast’s perspective, it would certainly be the perfect complement to your classic 50’s or 60’s car.
