Breadvan_update_001: The client briefing
Today we will share the client briefing and his design wishes with you.
Niels van Roij Design was approached by a true car connoisseur. However, a modern sportscar from Maranello was not enough for this individual, who came to our London studio with his own idea of a Breadvan Hommage.
In a nod to the original Breadvan’s straight roof, admired by the client so much, he asked Niels van Roij Design to reimagine this, and many other unique features, on his one-off motor car. “The car will have to exude the romance of racing for its own sake, and on first glance should immediately place Breadvan Hommage in the line-up of the world’s greatest race cars.”
With our Breadvan Hommage we create a unique vehicle for our car collecting client. The intention is to use a modern aesthetic, boasting its very own timeless character, and to reinterpret the classic original – rather than designing a retrospective vehicle: Breadvan Hommage will be respectful yet un-nostalgic homage to the past.
