Salone Milan 2010 – Smart Car by Rolf Sachs

Most cars are either solid colours or hideously “modded” in order to make them look customized. However, it is heartening to learn that there are designers who would try and turn fuming cars into artistic marvels. London based designer Rolf Sachs has teamed up with Smart Car in order to present this amazing car sprinkling art in Zona Tortona, for the Milan Design Week, 2010.




He has used sprinklers in order to spray the car with paint in his own way. There are no particular rules for spraying the paint and thus you would get a really customized car that would almost look free spirited. Sachs has not just painted on the outside of the car, but has gone ahead and sprinkled paint even on the upholstery and dashboard. He has liberally used blue, green, red and yellow buttons which look bright and colourful.


Rolf Sachs is an internationally acclaimed designer recognised for his distinctive multi-disciplinary approach. His body of work includes furniture, lighting, set design, architectural and interior design projects; all exploring the relationship between design and culture to elicit unexpected emotional reactions and break down perceived boundaries.


Core to his artwork is a human element, and an underlying sense of humour to each piece.

“Humble designs inspire me to add a twist, which unlocks the object’s hidden soul.”
