SLICE: A New Urban Living SolutionNasim Sehat
Observable trends like the gig economy and increasing urbanization are fueling the creation of services that are shared on demand and connected. Existing mobility services, like mobike, or pay-as-you-go coworking services, like nakedHub Go, are good examples that are enhancing and reconstructing city life and work in Chinese cities. People tend to own fewer properties, fewer belongings, fewer bikes and even fewer devices and instead use sharing services. We are nearing a future where new solutions for living and working spaces will be needed.
What is SLICE
SLICE is a sustainable, people-centric, connected, self-contained, and flexible plug’n-play urban living solution that caters to the needs of modern city dwellers, freelancers.
SLICE consists of a basic unit configuration: a sleeping module and a toilet module. The units are booked and accessed using a digital service. A deposit is required for first-time users and payment is calculated based on a combination of usage time, configuration of modules and usage of utilities, which is deducted automatically. Using the digital service, the user can report on defect modules which will be replaced.
