Blowfishes for the Motor Show
For the Shanghai Motor Show in April 2011, ACCENTform was tasked by the Wolfsburg-based company VOLKE Communication Design to make models for futuristic design concept at the 1:1 scale in only 8 weeks time.
All models were hand-made, using the lay-up method, and provided with a simple chassis. The main focus was laid on the brilliant surface, which was painted in a jazzy and high-gloss blue.
This design received some unique and special characteristics: the model “Sphere” adorned with its wheels´ has a diameter of 1.10 m (3.6 feet), or the 1:4 design model “Blowfish” with its dynamic shape and spines.
The transport to China took place on a specially chartered cargo airplane.
