United Nude Lo Res Concept Car
While most concept cars look like they’re from the future, we’re not sure any have looked like they’re from a different universe quite like this Lo Res concept from design company United Nude!
United Nude started life specialising in high heels but have since gone on to dab their design hand at pretty much anything and everything. The United Nude Lo Res Car is part of their Lo Res Project, a programme based on the principle of ‘re-designing the same object in a series, each time lowering the 3D resolution, resulting in a more fragmented and abstract design each step of the way.’
The Lo Res car origins actually began with the iconic Lamborghini Countach, a Marcello Gandini design from the early 70s. The lowering the 3D resolution of the Countach was a conceptual design experiment rather than a conventional car with United Nude saying it looks like a ‘moving sculpture.’ And it’s hard to disagree with them!
One of the main features you’ll notice on the United Nude concept is that it has no doors. Instead the entire body of the car is the door, which opens with electric lifts. The engine is also electric and the top speed is currently limited to 50km/h for safety.
The Lo Res concept’s body is made from polycarbonate and though the polygonal-shaped car looks the size of a wheelbarrow, the concept is actually a two-seater with the passenger sitting behind the driver. The interior of the car is kept suitably minimal with the focus on some elements that are made from polished stainless steel.
The United Nude Lo Res concept car is due to be unveiled in a few weeks in LA and the design house says they plan to produce more concept cars in the future. We hope so!
