England: Renault Invites Central Saint Matins, UAL to Collaborate On Future-Focused Interiors

By on May 16, 2016 in IN THE NEWS

Renault has collaborated with Central Saint Martins, University of the Arts London to offer the renowned college’s MA Industrial Design students the exclusive opportunity to experience the French car manufacturer’s pioneering Global Design Studios via a unique competition to shape the interior of future autonomous cars.

Through the partnership, nine groups of three students studying at the prestigious London-based arts college, which is the largest of its kind in the UK, have been tasked with determining how autonomous driving and the result of less driver interaction could impact on a vehicle’s interior environment.

The groups’ design concepts will be assessed by an expert judging panel that includes Anthony Lo, Renault, Vice-President, Exterior Design; leading media design figures and course representatives from Central Saint Martins. As part of Renault’s headline sponsorship of Clerkenwell Design Week 2016 (held 24-26th May), the winning group will be unveiled by Anthony Lo at the ‘Conversations with Clerkenwell’ design discussion that takes place on the evening of Wednesday 25th May.

Autonomous driving is of major importance to Renault, the brand being committed to introducing autonomous driving vehicles by 2020, with the ambition to become the first to offer ‘eyes-off/hands-off’ technology on mainstream vehicles at an affordable price.
