Fresh after unveiling the new 600+hp GT, Ford has unveiled a conceptual design collection at the Milan Design Week (Salone del Mobile). The comprehensive portfolio is centred on the stunning GT and includes a sailboat, chaise lounge and a foosball table.
The comprehensive collection uniquely overlooks the GT’s beautiful exterior bodywork to instead take its design cues from the car’s modern interior. The overarching themes of the collection aligns with the guiding design principles of the GT’s cabin; clarity of intent, innovation and user connection. These design principles are achieved through design solutions that “visually communicate fit for purpose, lean and lightweight, and perceived efficiency”.
The sailboat is a sleek carbon fibre design with an ergonomic Formula One shaped hull for enhanced aerodynamics and stability. It’s deep black hull adds to the allure and reinforces the suggestion of speed.
Ford Australia’s Melbourne design team contributed the svelte chaise lounge with an extremely minimal representation which seamlessly flows to the contours of the body for maximum comfort. The hard shell structure is overlaid with a soft felt which adds to the comfort of the user.
The complete design collection consists of:
- Chaise Lounge
- Foosball Table
- Horizon Light
- Suspended Light
