The latest in mobile offices, from Poland
POLAND’S Kadler design studio has released images of the Varsovia, a concept luxury saloon for the new executive who needs to be connected en route.
To be built by the Varsovia Motor Company in the Polish capital Warsaw, the futuristic car broadens the definition of a luxury vehicle. For a start, it takes note that most real executives travel only with a secretary and a driver, hence there are only three seats in the car. Varsovia said the seats will measure their occupants’ emotional state and adjust accordingly, but with no details of how the measurements will be taken nor what adjustments will be made.
The car contains all the digital paraphernalia required to turn the saloon into a mobile office, including two large 19-inch transparent displays.
The screens do not so much as fold back as integrate with the glass roof of the Varsovia, where the screens can either be 90% transparent to function as a roof window, or set to show any given images, from the family photos to the night skies.
When unfolded, the screens create a double panoramic screen with a record diagonal of 38 inches.
The operation of the equipment is possible thanks to a built-in tablet, keyboard and mouse. The secretary is, of course, linked to the internet with super-fast connection that Varsovia said will work anywhere in the world.
To further set the Varsovia apart from other saloons aimed at executives, the metal flanks are not smooth, but edged in fish scales, which designer Roman Kadler said was inspired by the mermaid featured in the coat of arms of Warsaw. The fish-scale effect has the benefit of looking like water rippling down the side, giving the impression of movement while the car is parked.
In the boot there is a tiny generator to charge the batteries on long roads, but like most electric cars today, the luxury Polish car will have a range of some 320 km.
Varsovia said in a statement that it intends to build the futuristic car as soon as 2018.
Poland’s Kadler design studio has released images of the Varsovia, a sedan for the new executive who needs a mobile office. The car has only three seats to allow room for the executive at the back to stretch his or her legs and unfold the two 19-inch screens (shown above).
