You’re looking at the Slow Car concept from Jurgen Bey, one of the Netherlands’ most respected high-end home furniture designers. He’s taken the humble office cubicle, and slapped it on a 25mph scooter. Talk about being chained to your desk.
He imagines environments like campuses and airports offering the vehicle, because it lets folks stay productive at a desk, in privacy, without walking. He says by limiting the speed, users should feel a sense of calm at being able to max out the throttle, something we don’t always get to do in cars.
Personally, being boxed makes me feel pretty far from calm. Fail. Check out the vid and decide for yourself.
