Students win awards for car design
on Friday,March 04,2011 21:03
The recent Car Design News-Vauxhall/Opel interactive design competition has concluded with two winners. Student Chiayuan Lu is from the UK's Coventry University and Victor Uribe is currently attending the Istituto Europeo di Design in Milan.
Lu won the contest's interior design award, while Uribe was recognized for his efforts in creating an exterior. The theme was a Lounge in Motion, which prompted students from colleges across Europe to enter. The hosts emphasized the fact that the end product should be "sculptural artistry meets German precision."
The competition attracted 898 submissions of work.
Lu's lounge was meant for parents who wanted to spend time with their children in the car. Entitled "Lounge to be together with your child," he integrated a baby chair into the rest of the backseat.
"He understood the target audience perfectly because, as a young dad, he was the target audience," judge Guy Bird said in a statement.
Interior design can be especially attractive when one decides to specialize in certain areas like Lu has. Many professionals in this industry are self-employed or work on a contractual basis, which can allow for unique flexibility, according to The U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics.
