Breadvan_update_037: bespoke seats
One off car interior
Our coachbuilt Breadvan Hommage will feature significant changes to the interior. It was designed inspired by heritage models. Therefore, the design started at 1960 race cars. There is a lot of character in these distinctive designs. In addition, we looked at trim and materials installed on hand-finished cars of these days. In other words, classic sports cars were very inspirational. However, we do take design liberties. We push our project into the future. For instance, the unique design will boast unique materials and colours. The research done starting the project, will ensure only relevant changes are made. The craftspeople working on the interior translate our work through their mastery. Regarding the seat design, we chose to pronounce original volumes and proportions. We do not only honour the original Breadvan, but also the base car. Above all, the new design is an enhancement of the original, rather than a complete re-design.
Tailor made seats
All leather will be removed from the carbon fibre seats. The blue Alcantara we’ve chosen originated in racing. It is a bold design statement. Many individual details are worth mentioning. The more pronounced surfaces described being only one. In addition, the colour-coded double stitching we’ve chosen is also a key design element. We worked on many different ideas. Amongst which a selection of stitching applications. The version chosen makes the seat surfaces come three-dimensional. It shows the handmade character of the car. Meanwhile, we decided to pronounce the original volumes and proportions of the OEM seats a bit stronger. By adding a few extra millimetres of padding. In this manner, we honour both the original Breadvan and the base vehicle. Another subtle change, for example, is the double stitching. The stitches are executed in a slightly lighter colour of yarn. It makes the seat stitching look slightly more outspoken.
The subtle headrest embroidery stand out just enough. The logo is not too big and not too small. The colour of thread used is slightly lighter. This coloured thread is complementary. This makes the contrast between the Alcantara and the stitches is sufficient rather than strong. The headrests embroidery is depicturing the outline of the Breadvan Hommage. Captured in only a few striking lines embedded in the Alcantara of the seat. Alcantara is one of the most beautiful materials and relevant for this car. It comes straight from the world of racing. The subtle ornamental aspect of the headrest embroidery in the hand-made seats showcase our eye for detail. It is a design exercise of nuance. In conclusion, the simple lines in the logo on the headrest are celebrating the Breadvan Hommage exterior design. An ode through stitching and embroidery.
