Breadvan_update_008: Ideation sketches of the Breadvan Hommage
Last week we shared the very first ideation sketches of our #BreadvanHommage project, showcasing initial ideas being put on paper.
We will remodel the complete 550 body, whilst meanwhile honouring it, by applying, enhancing, adapting or building on important cues from the Maranello proportions, surfacing and jewellery.
Like the material we shared last week, in these ideation sketches proportions and outline are still key. The search for new and interesting application of graphical elements – such as the visor windows and the many air intakes on the panels another focal point. The roofline and rake of the rear end of the Breadvan Hommage are equally important. We’re aiming at creating sophisticated shapes, surfacing and volumes, especially around the intakes, as these are arguably the most eye-catching elements of the design. Interconnecting volumes are being tried on most of these thumbnail sketch proposals.
The light catchers on the body – often horizontal elements of the body work such as sills, the top end of bumpers and facets – are very important for establishing the character of – and consistency within the design of the car. We will make them non-aggressive and rich in volume.
Next week we will show more design sketches, many 100’s of sketches will be made for this project. So please join us next Friday for Breadvan_update_009!
