      With technical support from Covestro experts, Umea Institute of Design ( Sweden ) students developed completely new ideas for design and functionality that expanded past design concepts and materials utilization. Their contributions played a key role in the design of the electric concept vehicle we displayed at the K2016 trade show.

      We also partnered with design students at the College for Creative Studies (Detroit), to visualize how materials can inspire the design of future autonomous vehicle interiors.

What will the interiors of future autonomous vehicles look and feel like? Here are some ideas from top automotive design students.
