Designer Exercise: Volkswagen T6 Mobile Office

Working on the road
by Brian Potter
Automobiles
are often thought of as sanctuaries. A place where people can retreat,
escape the rigors of life and take a moment to sort their thoughts
while cruising along.
However, Alexander Zhukovski, a student designer from the Ural State
Academy of Architecture and Arts in Ekatarinburg Russia thinks
otherwise. Recognizing the busy rhythmic world of today, Zhukovsky has
fused the two concepts of mobility and productivity in an extreme way
to create this executive "office of the future". Paying homage to the
VW Beetle and Transporter 1 bus for their iconic representation of the
50s-70s, Zhukovsky branded his roving office, T-6.
Giving new meaning to the expression "working on the road", the T-6
is constructed of two cylinders connected with a flexible middle
section that acts as a hinge when making turns. The wheels are
positioned onto the periphery of the body and revolve around the two
cylinders. Both ends of the cylinders have vertically opening doors.
