transport transport DESIGN design

A collection of transport design projects done during my education in Italy.

Project Coil

Inspired by the sari, the dualistic nature of the car combines the industrial and rigid sensation of metal as well as the soft HUKĂ…\PKZLUZH[PVUVMJSV[O

As visible from the sketches the wheels look bigger in proportion to conventional wheels. This is because the wheels are not conventional in any way and are segmented in deffernet parts, using suspension unique to itself and deleting [OLULLKMVYHPY[VILĂ„SSLK[O\ZTHRPUNP[SPNO[LYHUKTVYL LMĂ„JPLU[

The outer rim and tire segmented into parts combine with spokes to form a little suspension system of its own

Sketch studies to derive the form.

Nissan MADA concept

The Nissan Mada aims at making the electric car a fashion statement. Inspired by graphic design and fashion, this car PZĂ„[[LK^P[OPU[LYHJ[P]LS\TPULZJLU[KPZWSH`ZVU[OLL_[LYPVY Soft glows appear and can be customised. Thus making it a unique statement of individuality and style.

Like the exterior this too is inspired from soft graphic art as well as minimalist orient sculpture and archtechture. The panel is coated with transparent plastic under which is a completely interactive display and interface

Some sketch ideations to help realise the form.

A 3d form study.

Project Coil

An alternative and highly experimental interior solution inspired by wire frame furniture. A continous loop of wire was used to create an entire skeletal structure of an interior.

The fabric that coats the wire frame is not actually a fabric but two layers of hybrid polymer that sandwich a layer of graphene making the whole console touch sensitive and interactive, thus making the whole interior a console.

An entire frame of continuos loop of seven wires made of HS\TPUP\TV_PKLPZMVYTLK;OPZMYHTLPZTPSKS`Ă…L_PISLHUK very strong.

Breil Tattva

The Breil Tattva was inspired by the tesselated surface of a jewel. Cold, hard, slick and precious, this is a stainless steel watch with moldLKJHYIVUĂ„IYLPU[OLMHJL;OLU\TLYHSZHUK graphics are also custom designed.

Brushed stainless steel is used almost exclusively in the watch and all the edges are reminiscent of a tesselated jewelled surface yet keeping the form intact.
