Here’s a passenger vehicle. Usually I write about boats or really wild or fantastic sports vehicles. I’m not just assigned those projects, it just happens to be that a lot of them come my way when it’s time to publish. When this one came under my nose, I got excited. I got excited that this was a vehicle designed for a specific purpose, then I got doubly excited that the renderings were so fantastic. Then I kept getting excited.
This project is called “Peregrinate” and it’s by designer Gabriel Tam. Peregrinate is a chauffeur driven auto made for a designer boutique hotel by the name of the Fontana Park Hotel. The Fontana is in the city of Lisbon, the capital and probably most gorgeous city in Portugal, a place perfect to get driven around the block in a car in. The hotel has a full-on black and white theme, a hardcore lovely look reflected in the car. As for the workings of the car well, there’s a whole lotta stuff rollin on:
The car has a Superhydrophobicity Lexan polycarbonate body with a gradient transitional tint DLO – I’ll buy you a cup of coffee someday if you know what that means without looking it up. The entire car inside and outside is blade inspired – not the movie, the idea of a blade, sharp and sassy. Rear LED brake lamps, Polyurethane gel bumper, extended wheelbase creating an extra-long rear cabin, gliding pantograph door system, draw-style luggage compartment, front luggage compartment, furniture styled (comfort, of course) flowing seating systems. Customizable Technogel elastomer seating system, transparent OLED display system for driver and passengers, clean stylish working environment for driver, alternatively inclusive or exclusive cabin environment for passengers.
Make it what you want, all fantastic for your own hotel complex.
