For the BMW i-3/60° concept created in collaboration with Kiska, Han Yong-Fei’s research and inspiration was focused on sustainable and futuristic ways to manufacture objects.
The holistic approach involved rethinking the car itself by considering logistics and architecture. The result is a show car which displays an innovative solution that aims to reduce CO2 emission all around.
The platform’s design is stack-able to allow easy shipping to local factories. Once assembled, the platform is fully functional. The rest of the vehicle would be 3D printed. This technology will allow production to semi-customize components in order to suit to the market and using local resources.
The challenge is to find a good balance between a realistic and believable solution together with a new and subtle shape language.
