01. BMW Lovos Concept

Description

Lovos (Lifestyle of Voluntary Simplicity) is based on a philosophical idea, which asks critical questions about the design, construction and use of road vehicles, as we know them today. The world we live in is increasingly complex and we move within multifaceted social structures, hardly noticing that we perhaps lack an overview over how products and services influence and overwhelm us. We rarely question these structures and continue to live and consume habitually. The car represents this world in the form of a physical object. Lovos aims to oppose and question the familiar process of designing, building, purchasing and driving cars. The project is a symbol for the Life Of Voluntary Simplicity and is an object that seeks to provoke the viewer to sidestep his or her embrace of pleasant conformity. Leaving our common habits/knowledge behind, Lovos is asking fundamental questions:
How many parts do we use to build the exterior of vehicle?
How would a car look like, if it was build by just one (recurring) piece?
The result of an experimental research is a vehicle that is made by 260 identical, exchangeable pieces which are fixed with a hinge on a substructure.

 

The individual pieces are movable, which allows the surface of the vehicle to be closed - like the scales of a fish – or opened to the environment. These pieces work like airbrakes and are also photovoltaic, following the movement of the sun when the vehicle is stationary. Contrasts, emotion and provocation are the main themes of the design.
The pieces of the covered wheels are also functional: as soon as the vehicle starts driving, 12 pieces per wheel change their formation and move inside, just like a turbine. The interior is soft and warm and represents a contrast to the mechanical and technical exterior.

Description

Today tractors need to provide outstanding control to help the farmer as much as possible. This unique tractor is based on the idea of practicality. Its main feature is the 360° turning cabin positioned on its central axis, which will face the farmer in any direction he wants to be. This, incorporated with an all wheel driving system, provides the consumer with a truly advanced piece of equipment. This design solution creates a vehicle without “back” or “front”.
