Solidarity versus solitude: social spaces on wheels
In today’s society, we have the liberty of choice. Individuals can order custom made shoes online with the click of a button, granting them the satisfaction of choice; the choice of having complete control over their behaviour and their environment. However, the same could not be said for transportation. Once on board, we became the captives being held in an environment which we have no control over. As a result, the journey is monotonous and frustrating at times.
By allowing commuters to have an element of control over their seat arrangement, aesthetics and the optional choice to interact with fellow commuters, the Omniseat alleviates these concerns, making the travelling experience a vibrant and fulfilling one.
