The Grill’d Airstream

Burgers on the move as Grill’d takes it to the Australian road in a classic Airstream trailer

10 Nov 2010

Fast food has become a controversial topic of late, but we thought we should divert from our usual path and bring you a little bit of what our mothers called ‘sometimes food’.

We weren’t sure where to put this story at first, because it’s food, but it’s on wheels – we thought that Move was the best place, because it’s the way these burgers are delivered that has a very Design Hunter™ feel to it.

Australian company, Grill’d, have taken an American icon, the Airstream trailer, and converted it into a mobile kitchen, travelling the country to serve up their “old fashioned” fare on the road.

 

This ‘burger van’ really feels like a slice of America mixed with good old Australian ingenuity and good quality food made the way they used to be (while you wait).

Imported as a shell from the US and fitted out with in Australia, the aluminium exterior is matched by the stainless steel interior of the kitchen while a touch of timber veneer on the ceiling hints at the Airstream’s camper trailer heritage.

 

This portable burger joint was launched recently with the ‘Burger Love Tour’ where Grill’d gave away free burgers and the Secret Wars live art experience saw 2 artists battle it out for 90 minutes to create a unique artwork using the limited palette of black paint and markers on a white canvas.

 

 

The Airstream will be travelling Australia to serve up Grill’d ‘sometimes food’ at a number of events, so keep your eyes peeled.
