We just got design submission from Oliver Elst, it’s a concept car that boasts simplicity design for its exterior. Let’s read what Oliver has to say about his transportation design.
“My project aims at finding a common denominator out of simplicity and lightness and put it into a creative approach, which as a result does not only include a new way visual appearance, but furthermore charts a sophisticated path forward technologically. The common denominator is reducing, it appears in the aesthetics of the surface, plus in the implied light-weight structure.
In current discussions about consumption economization reduction is regarded as one of the most difficult tasks in the automotive industry. However, new materials, just like carbon fiber, feature an interesting way to reduce the weight. During finding an concept I noticed current light-weight- construction- materials offer a high physical light-weight, nevertheless do not get across their characteristics to the observers.
This is why I wanted to create a new material, which on one hand optimizes material light weight, but on the other hand optical light-weight as well. This material is shown with a ball structure and simply surfaces around the whole car.”
This project is awarded with a special price of the Lucky Strike Junior Design Award in 2012 with an appreciation of the jury president.
