CMPN is a compact single-seat solution for urban mobility. This concept, developed by the designer Sungguk Park, behaves just like a "fellow traveler": in what sense? It changes in parallel with the driver's inclination, changing according to tastes and lifestyles.
A small “single” car that works like a mobile phone cover.
Oh single, tell me what car you have and I'll tell you who you are (and what you do)
Revealing one's attitude and tastes is an essential condition for those who aspire to develop good social relationships. It is the basis of exchange, of sharing. Even conflicts, if you like. In other words, of personal evolution. The consumer society, however, has greatly taken advantage of this human inclination (especially in singles), forcing people to constantly change, costly, unsustainably objects.
Always buying new things, always buying different things, filling the world and the environment with packaging and wrapping. Can this concept of "single use" cars embrace more conservative values?
Like a four-wheeled LEGO
CMPN actively applies modularity to both exterior and interior design. The "single user" can easily modify it according to their tastes: an underrated feature. Extensive customization, in fact, creates affection: it increases the reuse of the same object by updating it instead of completely changing it.
In practice, it is a car that tends to be kept for longer and produces less waste. If I change a component, perhaps a roof, I will exchange it with another user and he too will not have to buy a new one. Conceptually, CMPN shows a possible solution.
Recycling, of course, and with pride
The modular structure of the single car was used, as mentioned, both for interiors and exteriors. All components are made of recyclable materials. Interior space and load compartment are not separated: there is no trunk, or rather, the whole car can be a trunk.
Or you can use the space to rest, or to "experience" some productive moments even on the move. This concept, in short, enhances the positive aspects of individualism. Who knows how, and how much, future cars will draw inspiration.
Interesting, to be investigated.
