Dominique Quinger

Mercedes-Benz Symphony Concept

What if future transportation was designed by music? Dominique Quinger, a trained classical musician from Germany, sought to answer that question with the Mercedes-Benz Symphony Concept. By exploring how music can inspire vehicle design and focusing on the creative process, he experimented with the transition from an audible to a visual experience, merging music, art, design and the Mercedes-Benz brand.

The complexity of the front of the car visualizes the introductory beginning of a musical piece with various instruments, rhythmical patterns and melodies. The side is kept solid and sculptural and, as a song progresses, it is experienced as an exciting whole. The rear end represents the conclusive statement, with quotations from previous elements. The vehicle itself becomes a musical piece.
