Car designers around the world, please help us to raise this baby. Make it yours.

Yes, you can!

Through the past five years I have been running a blog dedicated to car design with an experimental approach. I was eager to establish a bridge with the design community and to gain experience on the web.

Now, time has come for a new project with broader goals, focuses and reach.

The goal is to establish a very lively «Café littéraire» where professional designers, design educators and students, car and design enthusiasts meet, show their ideas, discuss design matters and trends, contribute with their own reports and stories to the development of a modern design culture, with past experiences and inputs from different cultures.

Please subscribe to our " Newsletter" to keep up with the progress Automotive Design Club International.

And, please, invite all your friends to join us, here and now.

Work is in progress. Be part of it!

Peugeot Milano Design Week

The automotive brand that perfectly matched the challenge of this year Milano Design Week was, in my humble opinion, Peugeot. They presented indeed excellent examples of furniture, design and art, at the right place, the right time, the right spirit.

Excellent examples of avant-garde creativity banking on cultural traditions, natural materials, craftmaship modern technology, artis’t freedom and design discipline.

BMW-3.0-CSL-by-Alexander-CalderRace and Art Cars.

Here, we are not proposing to discuss if car design is a form or art. That subject has been discussed many times, again and again, and no convincing conclusion has been reached so far, with everyone having his own opinion. Just as it is usual when it comes to a definition of beauty, style and arts.
This time my attention has been stimulated by the images of a “safety car for the MotoGP” championship that BMW has sent out recently. The graphic work is so strong and clear that I ended up liking it so much that I wondered why this works of graphic art are confined to motor racing.
