Renault, Suite N°4

"SUITE N°4 is a new mobility and travel experience. I wanted to merge the worlds of cars and architecture to create an open-air hotel room. Even better than the finest palatial suite, the car is exactly where you want it to be, whether that's by the sea, in the middle of a field or driving around the city you've always dreamed of." ML
To celebrate the 60th anniversary of the 4L, Mathieu Lehanneur was invited by French historic mobility brand Renault, a pioneer of electric vehicles in Europe, to reinvent it. Leave. To discover. To escape.Never before has the desire of elsewhere been so strong. Never before has the need for escape been so necessary. It is from this idea that Mathieu Lehanneur and Renault joined forces to invent a new travel experience. Designed from the legendary car 4L that celebrates its 60th anniversary this year Mathieu Lehanneur imagined a vehicle like a nomadic hotel suite, fully open to the outside and whose horizons can be continually renewed.100% electric, SUITE N°4 is an ode to escape, a bubble in its minimal luxury that is inspired both by the architecture and the environments in which it passes. As a room on four wheels, cozy and bathed in light, it combines a new art of living, in the city or in the countryside.
"SUITE N°4 is not a car, it is an architecture of travel." ML
Mathieu Lehanneur's vision was fuelled by the parallel worlds of automobile and architecture. SUITE N°4 is a tribute to Renault 4L, channelling the same pure, understated and simple spirit while prioritising efficiency and spontaneity. On top, this concept car projects the model into the designer's contemporary aspirations.
