Description of the project:

«Yagel» (meaning ‘reindeer moss’ in the Russian and some Ugro-Finnish languages) is a light-weight two-axle snow- and marshland-going vehicle on low-pressure tires. The basis of this vehicle is the construction of a real DIY off-roader. The designer reconsidered the composition of the vehicle and suggested the bionic image of bison as the leading metaphor for it. The engine is located close to the center of the body behind the driver and passenger seats. Right behind it (and over it) is a boot, which also houses a fuel tank. The bearing frame is enhanced with a spatial structure, which is also a protective and bearing frame. It enables the canvas cover hidden in a box in the upper part of the frame to be mounted without leaving the cab. The structural solution helps shape the image: an unusual inclination of the frame’s front supports creates a pushy assertive character while the open cab gives a feeling of freedom and ensures good vision.
