The negative emotions accompanying the millions of office workers rushing to work every morning, as well as transportation problems, inspired Danny Stillillion and her fellow designers at IDEO to develop an original concept for creating mobile work offices that will travel home on their own.
The main idea is to create a mobile module powered by electric motors, which can be placed in any convenient place in the immediate vicinity of the employee's place of residence. At the end of the working day, the modules will move into a special hangar and recharge the batteries until the morning.
The authors of the concept propose using stadium fields in the sports off-season, parking lots, as well as picturesque places, for example, city parks or piers on the banks of lakes and rivers, as possible places for accommodation.
Employers will be the first to feel the benefits of using them, since there will be no need for expensive office rentals, especially in such large cities as San Francisco, where over the past 4 years the cost of renting commercial real estate has “skyrocketed” by 81%. And taking into account the fact that more and more office workers work without leaving their homes, the departure of a mobile office can be planned only for those days when it becomes necessary to get everyone together.
The module will move without a driver during off-peak hours, which will significantly relieve urban transport communications. Having received information about the location of the arrived module, an office worker will reach it on foot or by bicycle in a few minutes.
