    Early Sketch

Tangible Absence

The concept is based on a futuristic scenario composed by two layers of living:

A tangible one, or rather feelings and passions, and an intangible one, or rather data, that will dematerialise in our minds.

The vehicle responds to a new need of luxury  to 'be disconnected'.

The vehicle is characterised by a 'nest' architecture to re-discover genuine and simple sensory sensations, for a new analogue life experience.
