For freelancers on the go, it's now easy to be green. Design firm Studio Hardie of England, inspired by the “hot-desking” trend, has put the ultimate work cubicle in the back of a Nissan van, the electric E-NV200 model, with a zero-emissions footprint. Not only does it have the basics — a desk, chair, Wi-Fi and a phone charging station — it also includes Bluetooth speakers, an espresso machine, app-controlled lighting, a mini-fridge and a glass roof.
And if you need to get some creative inspiration (and exercise) there is a fold-out bike mounted to the inside back door as well as a pull-out deck off the back of the van. Now instead of having that “dream get-away” picture as a background image on your computer screen, you can actually just drive your whole office on location and experience it firsthand while you work. You can save on rent, too.
It’s the ultimate experience for the modern freelancer.
