BMWs of the Future to Be Worn, Not Driven
The car-couture, if it can be called that, has been commissioned by BMW and design by a bunch of very imaginative students from the Istituto Europeo di Design (IED) in Barcelona. They come with all the perks of having wheels with the very polite gesture of wearing something when you go out in public.
Departing probably from the consideration that clothes and means of transportation do not necessarily need to be distinct items. Hence, you can get a rain coat on wheels, a hamster wheel for humans, kangaroo tendons made of hydraulic pistons, ski-like sneakers, a three-wheeled bed. Watch them in the gallery below and decide for yourselves what they are.
The projects created by the students are currently on display at Rambla de Catalunya, where they will stay until the end of the month. Each of them, of course, wears the BMW logo, so that all you people going to check this contraptions from a parallel universe know who is behind it all.
The designs are all exhibited under the “Suit that Transports You,” and have already managed to attract some well deserved attention. The exhibition has already been attended by Barcelona's mayor Jordi William Carnes, BMW's Stefan Borba and Alessandro Manetti, the director of the school.
