Richard Vink is 25 years old and lives in Roosendaal, Netherlands. He received an Industrial Product Design Degree from the University of Professional Education at The Hague and is currently a car technician.


The design of the car is inspired by the Bauhaus principle “form follows function” and the use of chrome tubes. A lot of functions are integrated in these tubes. In the front it’s a part of the bumper and goes to the back of the car where it is used as windscreen wipers and the door handle. Another tube is placed on the side of the car where it’s also being used for door handles. These tubes are then going to the inside of the car where they become part of the dashboard. The overall design is kept very simple and clear without any useless decoration, which is very typical for German design.
