Trending autonomous car concepts and projects have revealed a possible future of self-driven cars. This radical idea of a ‘driver-less’ car brings new ways of ‘seeing’ and ‘using’ a car, challenging current modes of personal transportation where proportion, interior, controls and seating arrangements are usually set in place and beyond the user’s decision. The prospect also highlights the shifting role of driver to passenger as the need for the car to be under constant control diminishes.
Designed as a framework for moving space beyond existing dogma, VITREOUS aspires a bold re-thinking of practicality and experience through flexible operatives, material hypothesis and technology, developed a context where personal mobility can be driven or go driver-less. The primary focus of this project is the flexibility of its interior. Beyond existing car design that determines the general placement of objects on the inside of the car due to considerations of safety and driving control, VITREOUS, as a car of self-driven capability, offers flexibility by means of moving and collapsing seats. This design deliberation creates a transformable space that can be varied for different purposes.
