Abstract [en]

Mercedes-Benz Symphony describes a vision for Mercedes-Benz Design inspired by music. The inspirational and experimental nature of the project serves the purpose of inspiring people and creating a connection between Music and Automotive Design. Placing the focus on the creative process of experimentation with the transition from an audible to visual experience the ob- server is introduced to a fabulous journey of design perception. The result of this research is illustrated by an automotive form study following this design philosophy.

The complexity of the front of the car visualises the introductory beginning of a musical piece with various instruments, rhythmi- cal patterns and melodies. The side is kept solid and sculptural as a song progresses it will be experienced as an exciting whole. The rear end represents the conclusive statement, with quota- tions from previous elements. The vehicle itself becomes a mu- sical piece.
