With more and more manufacturer’s revealing plans for autonomous vehicles, IKEA‘s future living lab, SPACE10, is getting in on the action with its latest project. Dubbed Spaces on Wheels, the initiative imagines what automobile interiors may look like once self-driving cars become the norm.

The SPACE10 project is comprised of seven concepts — office, cafe, healthcare, farm, play, hotel, and shop — each of which addresses a specific use. You can explore these spaces in virtual reality courtesy of the SPACE10 app.

SPACE10 insists that autonomous vehicles will “not only redefine how people and goods move around our cities, but also redefine the very fabric of our daily lives.”

In adding, IKEA’s Concept Innovation Manager, Göran Nilsson, said, “In a future where people no longer have to worry about driving, vehicle interiors can expand to a point where we no longer are designing cars, but rather small spaces.”
