Echoes of a Nearby Future : Formula 1 Concept Car by Andries van Overbeeke

We just received a conceptual Formula 1 car from Andries van Overbeeke. It’s a realistic vision of F1 concept car that can be implemented in 2017, following new rules revolution talks. You can read his explanations below.

I made a realistic future Formula 1 concept that could be implemented in 2017, when there is a big rule change. The intention of these rules is to make the cars look more aggressive and attractive. A lot of prominent Formula 1 guys have been talking about wider cars and bigger rear wheels, however there have been no realistic concepts that explore the aesthetics of these rule changes. I decided to make some nice crisp 4K images.

Looks are very important in Formula 1, but the quality of racing often is determined by the laws of physics. The problem here is that F1 cars are very dependent on aerodynamics for their speed: a leading car disturbs the airflow for the car following close behind, causing ‘dirty air’, and makes it difficult to have close racing. Thinking about the implications of your design on physics and the racing is very important.

The intention here is to make the cars less sensitive to the negative effects of dirty air, and shift more towards mechanical grip.

Utopia Yacht : A Vision of Future Yacht by BMT Nigel Gee and Yacht Island Design

Utopia Yacht is an ambitious project from BMT Nigel Gee in partnership with Yacht Island Design. It gives you a glimpse of an avant-garde future yacht that breaks the traditional naval architectural mould into a truly unique look free from any conventional design constraints. Utopia Yacht has been designed with spanning over 11 decks and measuring 100m in length and breadth. It has the equivalent volume of today’s cruise liner and enough space to create an entire micronation.

As the result of the challenge made by Electrolux to the students at the Domus Academy in Milan, the concept of Future ReSource Kitchen has been unveiled. Design Manager at Electrolux, Bruno Lizotte revealed saying to resource is to re-generate, remix and relax. The ReSource concepts by Electrolux include sustainable thinking as well as cultural reference points, both being an increasingly crucial issues for product design since our planet’s resources vanish and our changing habits as well as lifestyles are fed by ethnic influences in our pursuit for novelty. The nine key concepts future ReSource kitchen includes, Kinetic Efficient Water Appliance, Aeolus extractor fan by Chi Rong Hsu, CLEAiR air purifier by Ariadna Tellez Rossell, Breathe kitchen appliance by Beyza Dogan, Chefiamo virtual cookbook by Jervis Chua, Wine by Jung Kun Choi, Celcius by Marcela Vanesa Céspedes, and Fulcrum contemporary system of furniture plus kitchen appliance by Surbhi Singhal.

1. KEWA (Kinetic Efficient Water Appliance) by Pietro Russomanno, Italy
KEWA is a an air pressure cleaner that saves water, time, and energy. Water is directed through kinetic jets to create a ‘water-blade’ capable of cleaning a single plate or pan in one sole stroke. There is also a hand-held cleaner to remove anything that may have been left on the plate or cooking vessel in advance.

Felipe Campolina Designed A Skyscraper With Portable Housing

As the space in our cities disappears little by little, a young architect named Felipe Campolina, came up with a solution, which not only is beautiful it also minimizes the impact on nature. Felipe inspired himself from a movement in Japan postwar. In the 50s, there was a group of architects called Metabolist. They worked with prefabricated units. Having this noted down, Felipe started the design of a portable house unit. This was developed with a construction system that approaches both, environmental and social issues. The unit is made of standard OSB plate, thus defining flexible living areas that can be progressively coupled and adequate for transport. The unit is also equipped with windows in tempered glass, green roof and walls and a system that allows the reuse of water. Once the portable unit has been given it’s final touch, the creation of the skyscraper that will be composed of hundreds of these portable housing units was taking shape.
