* there’s something about a caravan

Even those of us who never owned one feel nostalgic for them, for the feeling of freedom and family they represent, all the unbound summers, open roads and beans straight from the can. While people have been affixing liveable trailers to the backs of cars since the first Model T rolled out of the Ford factory, it wasn’t until the peace and prosperity of the 1950s that the mobile home really slipped into popular consciousness. For the next thirty years, caravans owned the roads, redefining what it meant to take a family holiday and unleashing a new wave of automobile design. From DIY tin cans to fully furnished fibreglass legends, the caravans produced during these shining decades were things of great ingenuity and strangeness. We’ve collected the six that defined the…

You’ve probably seen the duck. If you’re anywhere near the duck, it’s hard not to see it. Six storeys tall, bright yellow and floating down the world’s major waterways, it’s the art world equivalent of the Nike ‘Swoosh’. And the places the duck has been: Sydney (twice!), London, Taiwan, Osaka, Auckland, Hong Kong, Los Angeles, São Paulo, Baku (it’s the capital of Azerbaijan) and a whole host more. It’s the most well travelled toy since the garden gnome from Amelie. The duck—called, simply, Rubber Duck—is the invention of Florentijn Hofman, a Dutch artist, designer and father of four who is the closest thing the world of public art has to a legitimate celebrity. Beyond Rubber Duck, now a veteran of more than twenty cities, Hofman has also built a giant octopus…
