The project
The design brief was to design a hommage to Mercedes-Benz for the hungarian plant opening. The car sculpture concept should give a personal impression about the Mercedes world and interpret it’s heritage.

In my car sculpture design I  synthesized Mercedes from my point of view. Mercedes is classic elegance, aesthetics, heritage, status, dynamics for me. I was inspired by biological forms and materials. My favourite inspiration was the wing structure of insects. The graphics of the insect wings has a particular character and dynamism which gives a special elegance to the main form. The sculpture’s form language was built by the dynamic shutlines and the panels in between.
I integrated the wheels into the body as detail of the main form. The car sculptue’s proportion is based on coupe form to emphasize the aesthetics and elegance of Mercedes.
