Architecture practice WMOR has revealed concept interior designs for a bus which looks to act as a moveable gym providing spin classes for busy commuters.
The design was conceived for 1Rebel, a London-based gym, and will enable gym goers to enjoy intensive exercise while travelling into central London on a moving, single-decker bus.
Space to create a “different environment”
The bus interior is designed to transform the monotony of the typical commute into a stimulating aerobic environment called “Ride2Rebel”
Buses are kitted out with the gym’s trademark neon signage, dimmed lighting, a digital scoreboard and tinted windows which allow only brief glimpses of the passing world outside.
The main challenge posed by the concept was in incorporating spin bicycles and weights into the restricted single-decker space.
WMOR’s project architect Vicky Tippell says: “The idea was to combine 1Rebel’s neon branding with sleek interiors and a modern, industrial feel. It’s about creating an atmosphere that takes gym goers away from the monotonous commute and into a different environment. They need to feel shielded from the outside world in order to concentrate on their aerobic journey, rather than the actual bus ride they’re experiencing.”
Hopes to launch this summer
The concept is currently in the process of construction, and hopes to be rolled out across London this Summer.
Classes are projected to last 45 minutes and buses will complete their journey at the 1Rebel St Mary Axe Studio in East London.
