EDAG Group wins prestigious design award
Singapore/Wiesbaden The concept car "EDAG Light Cocoon" was recently awarded the famous Red Dot Award 2016 at a presentation ceremony in Singapore. The "Red Dot: Best of the Best" award pays tribute to top design quality that demonstrates outstanding innovation in both form and function.
The combination of bionic design and sophisticated lighting concept capable of back-lighting the vehicle's outer skin in a wide variety of different colours won over the inter-national Red Dot jury. However, the concept car created by EDAG Engineering GmbH, a leading engineering partner to the automotive industry, stands for far more than just smart automobile design. "The reason we used a printed skeleton structure was to demonstrate what intelligent future lightweight design might look like," explained ED-AG's Chief Designer Johannes Barckmann. "Nature has her own strategy for lightweight design: material is only put to use where it is absolutely essential for stability." The addi-tively manufactured skeleton structure was covered with a protective outer skin made of textile fabric, to make the innovative body concept visible.
