The award-winning Genesis 3D printed, self assembled car concept, by vehicle design graduate Nir Siegel from Royal College of Art, would build itself via a specialized 3D printer.
The 3D printer would print out a car all around itself to match the buyer’s specifications.
Concept for a 3-D self-assembling car and a new vision of luxury are the winners in this year’s Pilkington Vehicle Design Awards at Show RCA.
Vehicle Design graduate Nir Siegel takes the prize for Best Design Interpretation for his concept, Genesis, a 3-D printed, customised and self-assembled car. The idea is to evolve products and services, based on customer needs, avoiding obsolescence.
