Hot new lighting technology for cars of the future! I imagine this could also be an interesting and exciting application on buildings and signage!
Mercedes MakeoverThis award-winning project by Oliver Elst applies the theme of reduction to the aesthetics and structure of this Mercedes concept, in the process creating an entirely new material and light-weight technology. The “sandwiched” material visible throughout the vehicle would consist of 3 layers- 2 for interior and exterior protection and an inner reactive filling that is used for temperature and lighting adjustment. The resulting aesthetic is an organic skin-like shell synthesized into a classic metal framework.Designer: Oliver Elst
