JAGUAR INSPIRED SCULPTURE

The most appealing vehicle designs are often closer to art than engineering, and many classic cars have come to be revered for their exceptional beauty.

The Jaguar E-Type is often regarded as the most beautiful car of all time, and now its successor, the new F-Type has been captured in a new sculpture created by students at the Royal College of Art (RCA) in London.

The artwork will be displayed at Clerkenwell Design Week (May 21-23, 2013) in London and is the result of a collaboration with Jaguar Advanced Design. Nine students from the Vehicle Design and Textile Design Departments submitted their designs, and the winning entry was from Ewan Gallimore and Claire Miller.

The brief was to create a joint exterior and interior form study to express the vision of future Jaguar Design in either a sports or luxury context.

According to Ewan and Claire, "Jaguar has a long history of ground-breaking design so we needed to create something special to catch the eye of Jaguar Advanced Design Director, Julian Thomson. We began the project by looking at light, specifically the way light falls within the space at Clerkenwell. We thought about how our form could accentuate this light and convey volume through its use of materials and our knowledge of how these materials react with one another."
