The 2011 Detroit Auto Show may be dominated by fancy concepts or soon-to-be-released cars, but there’s also room at Cobo Hall for some fancy works of art. One such artwork that was prominently displayed at the auto show was the Mercedes-Benz Aesthetics No. 2 sculpture by Mercedes.
Created by Mercedes designers to show the art and aesthetic language that goes on in the development of interior designs and carbon ergonomics, the Aesthetics No.2 sculpture is the proud culmination of a project that aims to look at what the future holds for the interior space of Mercedes vehicles.
Measuring 5.6m x 1.83m x 2.6m scaled 1.5:1, the sculpture was touched up with an ‘Alubeam Liquid Metal’ paint finish to simulate the unobtrusive, free-flowing design of the sculpture.
Mercedes designers, in looking onward to the aesthetic design language of the future, came up with the Aesthetics No.2 sculpture to show the boundless opportunities that lies in environmental design, one that’s grounded on nature’s diversity and the “all-encompassing interplay of her elements”. The design of the interior sculpture is just a peek of the possibilities that lie ahead for the company. From what the Aesthetics No.2 Sculpture has shown us, it looks like the German automaker already has a fair grasp of what the design process of their future models will look like.
