Interior design : Sens awakening

Imagine, draw a vehicle interior that awakens all human senses while providing well-being to users. Go further in the awakening of the senses than what we can find today:
-Touch nice material
-His high fidelity car radio
-Pretty leather smell.
It is the experience of sens awakening and the well-being of the users in a cabin of an autonomous vehicle which will have to prevail.

Exterior design : Raw beauty

Imagine, draw a concept car (you can even delete the concept of “bodywork”) in its purest definition, “frugal” devoid of any ornament, decoration of the purest. New materials or new implementations of known materials open new perspectives in terms of opacity including allowing to imagine new bodies for example.
The goal will be to draw a pure, frugal, elegant, natural and timeless body.

Exterior design : Haute couture !

Modern cars, even in the upper range, in a « fashion » way of seeing things  would be closer to ready-made clothing than Haute Couture.
Global growth of very high end and luxury markets could open new opportunities to extreme personalization of car bodies, far beyond simply a color choice. Which materials, manufacturing processes, assembly, sewing could be imagined to manufacture the exteriors of these top end cars ?
Making or garment manufacturing in very small series or even of a one shot could give freedom to artists or designers to express their boundless creativity. No technical constraint should restrain you here, it is truly the expression of an unbridled creativity but always elegant which will be your guide line…

Interior design : Pleasure of travelling in 2030

Imagine a journey experience in 2030. Cars since the very early days have always been a symbol of freedom and autonomy. Thanks to individual automobiles, millions of people around the world have shared mobility experiences (traveling, going on holidays, for a short or a long journey, etc.). Taking into account all aspects of modern environment (connectivity, speed limits, etc.), imagine how people will be traveling in individual vehicles tomorrow… Overall illustrations of the interior will be required as well as details of seats, dashboard, door panels, clusters, etc. User’s experiences and innovation must be the guidelines of all projects.

Design extérieur : Invisible technology for enjoyable driving experiences

How can innovative technologies create new ENJOYABLE mobility driving Experiences in terms of pleasure, safety, ecology, and ethic ? Can new technologies when invisible and non intrusive still be perceived by the driver but also the users as a new realm of value to the experience ? The “invisible” aspect does not mean technology is absent, how can human senses perceive it? How technology when disappearing can enhance it ? In the projects, it will be important to develop innovative solutions in terms of vehicle architecture and illustrate them in an engaging way (ghost views, exploded views and/or 3D, etc.).

Design : Driving pleasure 2.0

In an ever growing population world where energy becomes every day more expensive and increasingly rare, how could the BMW brand position itself ? Taking into account that the brand has built through time its reputation much based on the use of technology, performance and driving pleasure, how could BMW develop a new generation of “pleasure” vehicles that would convey feeling and emotion to its driver and passengers and at the same time respecting environment… How could new technologies be used taking into consideration that the traditional car architecture (combustion engine / manual transmission) will certainly very soon disappear ?
