The Mercedes-Benz Aesthetics No. 2 sculpture by the brand's Interior Design team is meant to convey the aesthetics of future cabin design.
Here's a work of art. Or a work in progress.
This is the Mercedes-Benz Aesthetics No. 2 sculpture by the brand's Interior Design team. The design is an abstract representation of a cabin interior. Mercedes-Benz says the sculpture tries to capture the art and aesthetics of its interior designs and cabin ergonomics.
As Mercedes-Benz head of design, Professor Gorden Wagener, says in the press release: "At Mercedes-Benz, automobile design is artistic creation...In the interior sculpture Aesthetics No. 2 we have allowed creative fantasy to develop freely without constraints. We have followed nature's diversity & perfection;...However, we do not simply mimic Nature, but learn instead from the intricate, all-encompassing interplay of her elements - this, too, is a hallmark of art."
The sculpture is painted in an 'Alubeam Liquid Metal' color and measures 5.6 meters x 1.83 m x 2.6 m on a scale of 1.5 to 1. The white seating space is made to look like ivory.
The sketchy design is meant to evoke the feeling of a future Mercedes-Benz interior. And, whether consumers warm to a particular model or not, its that kind of creative ambition that keeps the brand's designs at the forefront of the premium segment.
