Italian design house Pininfarina has revealed a new exhibition of concept car designs by some of Europe’s top design students.
On Board Emotions showcases the results of a workshop with students from four top design schools, who sought to create vehicles that looked at the future of the car, incorporating on-board emotions and how the car’s interior may one day interact with the outside world.
Of course, these ideas will never reach production: they’re flights of fancy, exploring particular ideas and aspects of car design - much in the way haute couture relates to high street fashion.
The schools involved are Istituto d’Arte Applicata e Design (IAAD) and Istituto Europeo di Design (IED) in Italy, l'Institut Supérieur de Design Rubika (ISDR) in France and Umeå Institute of Design (UID) in Sweden.
Below is a gallery tour of some of the cars created. You can see the designs in more detail at the Borgo Medievale in Turin from 7 to 12 June.
