The Express Limited – Life is a Journey to the Future
An interior and living design project involving young designers to envision cutting-edge realities related to Language.
Envisioning Workshop Language
The theme of this Envisioning workshop is “Language”. The workshop was about language-related issues and phenomena which have an impact on our present and future society and aimed to predict cutting-edge realities based on merging innovative emerging technologies with socio-cultural, geo-political, and strategic thoughts. Students were asked to observe and question contemporary facts and themes related to Languages with a creative and critical mind-set. The goals of the workshop were to analyze scenarios related to the Language and to create a design concept. The Product Design students had to focus on a “thing”, while the Interior & Living Design students had to focus on a “space”. The result had to envision futuristic and significant realities related to Language.
This project The Express Limited is the suggestion of presenting an ‘amalgamation’ between reality and the imaginary world. For distinctive values and desires by people, space offers not only a personalized but socializing area. With the ‘Express’ as the metaphor of life to the future, space is divided into different wagons. By adopting AR tech, the first Guest wagon shows passengers personalized environments. The last Bar wagon enables them to view their desires with each other and eventually help them find someone who would be fit on themselves. Thus, this space could interact with the passengers and encourage them to get close to their goals in life.
