While getting smarter and more eco-friendly, today’s architecture is definitely becoming weirder and weirder. Take, for example, dmvA’s new mobile office module, the Blob VB3.
The Blob was designed as a concept module for secondary offices or large companies, or possible add-on spaces for homes. Although its shape leaves much to be desired, the idea is ingenious. The interior structure of the blob is a continuous and curved shelf unit. The shelves offer storage space for your books, office supplies, equipment and even your slumbering self. That’s right, one section of shelving provides a space long enough to settle into for the night.
Another section of shelving acts as the façade for a bathroom, which holds a toilet and shower. On the opposite end of the egg is a working miniature kitchen and the space in the middle is completely open, leaving room for the occupant to set up shop in any way they want. It could easily be decorated to serve as an office, study, quiet retreat, arts-and-crafts nook or any other idea the venturing soul who would purchase a blob could come up with.
The blob has a side hatch that opens like you’d envision a spacecraft doing - upward like suicide doors - but also with a hatchback of sorts. The narrower end of the egg completely opens upward, leaving the insides exposed to much more natural light and air. It’s like a convertible that opens on the front instead of up-top, although it does that too with a nifty little ventilating sunroof.
