We started with a real–life school bus and reimagined it as your favorite professor’s library. (Office hours start now!)
Why take a road trip unless you do it in style? We found a road–ready bus and stripped out its interior (goodbye, old seats) to make room for oak shelves, a chalkboard, a distinguished library, and a full selection of Warby Parker frames.
Inspiration came from landmark libraries, marbled book linings, mid–century school rooms and a vintage Rolls Royce.
From start to finish, it took four months to build out the bus interior. We refurbished the floor, added an optician’s station, and installed a generator to keep the electricity flowing (as well as the heat and air-conditioning).
We also constructed glass vitrines to display new collections and special items—and for high-style driving, the driver’s seat was reupholstered in caramel-colored leather.
Feel like cooling your heels? Pick up a book and flop down on one of the bus’s luxe leather couches. We stocked the shelves with classic page–turners and Beat Generation favorites, including a couple of titles from our literary hero, Jack Kerouac.
