Citroen Zen concept

Ethan Anh Pham drew on his own personal experience to create the ‘Citroen Zen’, a vehicle he calls the “city car as a spiritual gateway”.

After frequenting a Zen garden near his home during a stressful period in his life, Pham focused on making the car a stress-free environment for the driver by incorporating the essences of Zen into the design. He therefore designed the car around a Japanese tea house and developed the theme retaining its inherent qualities.

Pham also sought to explore different materials and textures to emphasize the feeling of Zen in the car’s design.
