THE ORIGINAL MOBILE INCUBATOR is a showcase of American creative enterprise. The structure is a completely overhauled 1957 Shasta camper, an American icon of industrial design by Robert Gray. Shasta sold the largest volume of all trailers in the ‘canned ham’ era of campers - 1940s through the 1970s - and the lightning stripe on its side has been replicated by numerous SOBs (Some Other Brand).  

The interior of the Mobile Incubator showcases contemporary design products such as a mosaic table designed by artist Kate Jessop, laser cut signage by Tieton Mosaic and sconces by GrayPants Inc. The upholstery is from Pendleton Woolen Mills and artist Michèle Fandel Bonner. The walls of the Mobile Incubator are a 1,000+ piece wooden mosaic hand constructed by Lucas Spivey. The incubator was constructed at Mighty Tieton, an artisan business incubator in Central Washington State.
