Billed as a compact sports car, the Light Cocoon has a "bionically optimized vehicle structure" and a"weatherproof textile outer skin panel."

EDAG has announced plans to introduce the Light Cocoon concept at the 2015 Geneva Motor Show.

Billed as a compact sports car, the Light Cocoon has a "bionically optimized vehicle structure" and a"weatherproof textile outer skin panel." The latter also is also backlight to showcase the concept's "skeleton-like, organic structure."

According to EDAG's head designer Johannes Barckmann, "We are pursuing the vision of sustainability – as demonstrated by nature: lightweight, efficient, and without any waste. The result: the EDAG Light Cocoon presents a stable, branch-like load bearing structure from the 3D printer, which only uses material where it is absolutely necessary."

The limited use of structural materials and the lightweight outer skin - which is four times lighter than standard copy paper - allows the concept to be extremely lightweight and efficient. EDAG declined to go into details but we'll probably learn more in March.
