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. Not unlike the gear that an inhabitant of the International Space Station may be seen wearing while performing a spacewalk, the picnic basket has a casing of white plastic, within which are speakers, USB charging ports, a Bluetooth-connected screen, and a solar panel, to ensure that you are constantly connected and unable to engage in anything as off-putting as face-to-face interactions. The contraption also incorporates a space to hold two metallic silver pillows, for that extra Space Age feel. Say the designers, “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.”
