Research: Active Skin

As an ongoing research project in the studio we are studying the possibility of using micro-technologies to embed multiple functions into the "skin" of a car. These functions include cooling, aerodynamics, lighting, and embedded screens.

Our work contributes to the unending evolution of car design that - like fashion - increasingly seeks expression within the boundaries of the surface. The "skin" of cars takes on sophistication and amplifies the possibilities of cars themselves.
