Breadvan_update_011: Breadvan Hommage sketch boards
Ideation sketch boards
The very first ideation sketches of the project are seen in these sketch boards. The boards show the initial ideas we put on paper. The team has made the sketches shortly after the discussions with the client and coachbuilder were concluded. These sketches show the search for the right proportions and a start of the design of basic surfacing. Later we will dive into the jewellery – the details of the car.
A sculptural design expression
Graphical elements – such as the windows, air intakes on the bonnet, fenders and side panels – made the original car stand out. Putting the sketches together on one image helps to show all the different takes on the iconic long roofline and, even more importantly, the rake of the rear end of the Breadvan Hommage. This rake has been modernised and translated into a more sculptural design expression. Instead of being straight and stiff, the rake will run around the corner of the back.
By grouping the other sketches too, a clear design theme is visible per group. Sketching in three dimensions in the early stages is important. This experiment makes the changes coming alive. This goes for the unique handmade nose and rear-end of the car, the volumes around the wheels and rear fenders. The car can be balanced better once seen in three quarter view.
Experimenting in car design
Several minor changes are being made per car. They all feature different design themes. Within the sketch boards these can be seen, especially when put next to each other. The experimenting thus takes place on a larger scale, per design theme, and on a smaller scale, within the design theme. Please join us again next Friday for Breadvan_update_012!
