Breadvan_update_085: how to design a car interior?
Bespoke interior design
Niels van Roij Design designed a complete personalised interior for the Breadvan Hommage. As a result the interior suits with the exterior design. So, the craftsmanship of upholsterer Sjoerd is highlighted in this update. We’re working closely with the patron to create the Breadvan Hommage. Consequently, we call this co-creation at Niels van Roij Design. The motorcar is completely designed around one main theme: classic race cars. The new design includes uniquely made blue Alcantara seats. For instance, the other interior elements can be seen in the photos too. Historically seen we could have designed this upholstery in any colour and picked many materials. Because the original car has seen many different interiors. However, the blue seats that once were installed in the original Breadvan stood out for us. You can now see the finished door panels including the Alcantara element.
Blue Alcantara seats
At Niels van Roij Design we enjoy some design freedom too. So, we decided to pronounce the original volumes and proportions of the seats a bit more. In this way, we honour both the original Breadvan and the base vehicle. Above all, the new design is an enhancement of the original seat. The seats boast a pattern in the centre elements. So, the team decided to add a few extra millimetres of extra padding. This helps to enhance the shapes. Together we create a relevant new interior design. Coachbuilding by Niels van Roij Design means an exercise in subtlety. And freedom to make the ideas of the owner. In this case the door panel is wrapped in soft black leather. Subtle changes are the beautiful double stitching. And the quilted lower door panel element. The quilting is used on the centre stack and headliner too.
The details aren’t the details. Therefore, the headrest on each seat features an elegant embroidered Breadvan Hommage outline. A subtle decoration. Captured in only a few striking lines. Embedded in the Alcantara of the seat ton-sure-ton: blue on blue. Alcantara is one of the most beautiful materials, straight from car racing. This subtle ornamental aspect in the hand-made seats showcase the eye for detail at Niels van Roij Design. We design the full interior with the same attention to detail. Beautiful, tactile and flawless materials. Real aluminium in the door panels. Milled elements around the air vents. Handmade bespoke dials. Which also feature the same Breadvan Hommage outline. So, Niels van Roij Design leaves every patron a free hand. For example, from the option of colours to the layout of gauges. Follow the Breadvan Hommage project on our social media pages!
