Volvo Space is a container-sized object that can fly like a large quadcopter, ride on water like a speedboat, and travel on the road like a other "lounge" vehicle concepts that we have seen.
An ambitious design that explores the boundaries of the 'modular' transport of the future.
Environments that move
The way to move in the future will be more practical and will do much more than just take people from one place to another. There are now many vehicle concepts that aim to provide a pleasant, airy, fun and stress-free journey.
This Volvo Space raises the bar a little higher. And he hypothesizes a "commuting" that crosses every possible means: land, water, air. The designer Joon-yeop Bae, author of the concept has the vision of a compact and comfortable space of a highly modular nature, just like the mobile homes of the current era. A moving place where you can relax, have fun or work without losing the intimate confines of the house.
Volvo Space: mobile architecture
Joon worked on the cockpit of the Volvo Space as an architect would. The fulcrum of the interior space is represented by an almost Zen environment, with seats to be used as a reading corner or workstation, which become night beds.
The pop-up table adds many alternative positions for different utilities based on the rotational ability of the structure. There are wireless charging docks, dynamic surround speakers, lights, cup holders and an additional basket to keep customers in the comfort of a pleasant environment. As with a room to furnish there are also several lighting choices available to create the ideal atmosphere.
For a self-respecting lounge, a bit of outdoor space cannot be missing: and Volvo Space offers the possibility of opening up, literally, even on the ceiling: more light and air to make the boundaries between environments increasingly blurred. The overall form of this creative proposal is quite radical and intriguing: it is no coincidence that it won the Volvo Design 2021 competition.
