Nissan's New Pod Concept Turns Remote Working into a Dream
With remote working becoming part of regular life lately, Nissan has smartly jumped on the bandwagon to offer an alternative for those who can't stand working from home — or who simply want a change of scenery.
The van allows people to work from anywhere, but it's sadly only a concept at this stage.
Nissan's NV350's most striking feature is the office pod that slides out of the back of the van. It comes equipped with a desk, a Herman Miller Cosm chair, polycarbonate flooring that allows you to see what's happening beneath your feet, and edge lighting.
Remote working takes on a whole new meaning with this van. You can literally immerse yourself in nature — once retracted, the office pod doesn't host windows though, so you have to be a nature fan to enjoy this design.
Alternatively, if working directly in the great outdoors isn't quite your thing, the van allows for a comfortable indoor working space, which has electric shades that make the lighting work well for a computer screen.
On top of that, you won't fall asleep thanks to the built-in coffee machine that comes with the van. But if you insist on having a post-lunch nap in nature, you simply have to head up to the rooftop that's equipped with a lounge chair and parasol. It doesn't get much more comfortable than that!
You'd have to make sure to park somewhere near a toilet or near trees, though, as the van doesn't have a bathroom.
Aside from that, Nissan's office pod van concept offers a fantastic solution for many people struggling to stay concentrated while working from home.
