Somewhere between a working office and a stretch limousine, this futuristic Volkswagen concept car gives new meaning to taking your work home with you.
Designed by, Alexander Zhukovsky the T6 vehicular office has two functional components tethered around a central pivot, a bit like those double-long buses already on the roads, or more like semi trucks with front cabs: a pair of pieces joined but without the need for creating contiguous space between them.
The question, of course, is: what sorts of situations require multiple people from the same office to hit the road at the same time? A lot of possibilities exist, if you give it some thought: a team of architects visiting a construction site, a corporate board prepping to attend a meeting, or a shared commute between coworkers in general.
Still, if driverless cars make their way to the roads soon enough, the front portion, reserved for the driver, may become redundant before anything like this would even be on the drawing boards at car companies. Of course, this is only a concept, so it’s not likely to appear on car lots anytime soon (or maybe ever?)
“Ethnographic expeditions to the Far North, the study of lifestyle and culture of the indigenous peoples of the Russian North, the study of applied arts on par with a modern design, interest in both traditional cultural values and the latest technology and futurology – all of these categories have formed my individual design concept and my own vision of the process. ‘I realized that design is the art of using past experience to create an experience of the future. It’s like a bridge in time. This bridge is built on experiences, emotions, feelings, observations, calculations and research, and it takes form in an attractive and useful product to facilitate and decorate our daily life.'”
