Auto&Design and Alcantara have selected the ten finalists of the competition “Dress Your Vision – Alcantara is on board”, an online competition open to transportation design students and car design enthusiasts. The young creative artists were invited to devise design proposals for future mobility using the Alcantara material in an innovative way.
The projects of the ten finalists will now be evaluated by eight highly qualified jury members: Andrea Boragno, Chairman and CEO of Alcantara, Silvia Baruffaldi, Editor of Auto&Design, Domitilla Dardi, Maxxi Design Curator, Alec Ishihara, Principal (Color Materials) & UX Designer Microsoft, Manuele Amprimo, Chief Interior Design C&T and HMI Lamborghini, Annette Baumeister, Head C&T BMW, Rossella Guasco, Color&Material Design Stellantis and François Farion Design Director, Colors and Materials Groupe Renault. The winning project will be announced on December 3rd on the website and on our social channels.
The Experience by Milton Royan Gabriel is the study of a modular interior environment dedicated to the vehicles of the future. The seat can be more traditional or hammock-like for longer trips where self-driving comes into play. Alcantara is used as upholstery and has small air bubbles in its weave that can inflate and deflate to increase comfort and better take the shape of the passenger’s body.
