Slick, satisfying... and you can get work done!
Creative Mobile Interiors recently completed a stylish and refined Ford E-350 mobile office for a full-service commercial truck company. The company’s executives were in need of a functional vehicle that would do more than just transport them from point A to point B. Not only will the vehicle save on the overall costs of traveling (plane tickets, lodging, etc), but it will allow the company to pursue new business while away from their corporate desks. Their wish - for a livable, drivable, mobile office - was CMI’s command.
The WiFi enabled, and custom painted van (designed and completed by the customer) gives new meaning to workplace comfort. The driver’s area was kept mostly the same but included the addition of a full partition wall behind the front seats. The wall features an automated sliding window to allow privacy between the two areas.
A large L-shaped desk/counter top “floats” off of the partition and sidewall. The desk space is abundant enough to house a full-service printer/copier/fax machine as well as areas to write and work on a laptop. A large, luxurious captain’s chair sits in the bend of the desk to act as a superior task chair. Beneath the desktop, on the driver side, sits a small cabinet that houses various electronics, electrical equipment and a rear stereo unit with iPod/USB/CD/Radio capabilities. Additional cabinetry is provided overhead, on the driver’s side wall, to house other office necessities.
Rearward of the desk area sits a plush, full-width custom sofa that can fold flat into a bed. The bed itself will be used to replace a hotel room when so desired (on short trips). The sofa sits atop a custom fabricated riser that contains storage that can be accessed from the vehicle cabin as well as through the rear doors..
The interior finishes resemble that of an executive jet. Soft, smooth, padded vinyl walls and ceiling panels give the vehicle a deluxe feel only amplified by the exotic wood laminate cabinetry and two-tone leather seating. To add to the sleek atmosphere within the van, CMI installed LED overhead lighting and LED accent lighting throughout. The rich burgundy accents pulled from the seating also find their way to the edge of the counter tops and a sleek stripe along the ceiling line. Burgundy and gray (day-night) window shades give the customer a choice of light filtering ability. Lastly, a pair of 6”x9” speakers sits above the rear sofa for cranking up some music when the work day is over.
For business owners that never sleep, there is nothing better than being able to work and accomplish goals when you’re away from the office.
