RCA v2.0

Some more pics from the RCA show;

The inspiration for the form language on this car came from rainforest-inhabiting frogs, with their padded ‘fingers’ referenced by the wheel supports.

This grew on me – in profile the funky sneaker shape is appealing, the window cutouts are novel, and despite the colour scheme it manages to look organic and approachable. I like.

This beastie was in the product-design area, and has a patent pending for a new method to ‘fold’ metal panels along pre-determined paths. You be the judge;

To give you an idea of the diversity on show in the Transport design section there was also –

A full-scale taxi / personal-transport helicopter inspired by Aldous Huxley’s Brave New World vision of Utopia;

This dhow/trade ship for developing markets that was nicely detailed;

and this car that takes the ‘inside-out’ approach to structure and surfaces;
