Picnic Basket of the Future By Atelier Teratoma
Astronauts and Sunday picnics may not seem to have much in common, but Madrid design studio Atelier Teratoma has somehow managed to combine the two in this futuristic back-mounted picnic basket design. Atelier Teratoma has designed a futuristic picnic basket to ensure that you're plugged in all the time. The basket looks like a jet pack out of the Space Age, and it comes with two silver pillows, speakers, USB ports for charging devices, a Bluetooth-connected screen to communicate with other picnic goers, and a solar panel that allows the basket to charge itself.The contraption also incorporates a space to hold two metallic silver pillows, for that extra Space Age feel.
“Traditionally the picnic is associated with the search of natural environments to share a meal. But what happens when we bring this idea to a context defined by hard pavements, congestion and new ways of communication? We believe that today the natural setting for a picnic should be the epicenter of the city: the square.”
