Now the Swiss automotive producer is announcing that it has commissioned contemporary pop artist James Rizzi to bring a special touch both to the concept’s body and to the company’s Geneva booth.
The vehicle’s body will feature a beach scene that will create a perfect mix with the vehicle’s theme, a reinterpretation of the 70’s free spirit. In addition to that, the BamBoo’s rollbar will receive the artist’s special icon, the Rizzi bird, which can change its color to express the driver’s mood.
“For the 33rd anniversary of Swiss concept car creator Rinspeed at the Geneva Motor Show founder Frank M. Rinderknecht - as usual - came up with something highly unusual: A special dose of creativity from world metropolis New York City gives both the stand and Rinspeed's latest concept car creation "BamBoo" a special touch, courtesy of indefatigable contemporary pop artist James Rizzi. The inflatable roof of the "BamBoo" is decorated with a hand painted Rizzi beach scene,” stated the press release.
“His unique icon - the Rizzi bird - is also a must: It is attached to the "BamBoo's" roll bar and can change color to communicate the occupants' mood to the outside world - green could stand for ‘I feel like meeting new people. Where is the next party?’ “
Rinspeed is uncertain if the BamBoo will enter series production. If it does, the car could either get electric or conventional propulsion.
