  • "It's kinda of a strange world, when we herald, what we'd otherwise call common sense and actual usability,  something which is sadly missing in contemporary car design. I like the concept, but I can't really get over how they messed up the front fascia. Rather than have a pair of focused eyes and a clear identity, it's all washed out and undefined. "

  • "Ah, that makes a difference, but I'm guessing they're still painted, so they will scratch easily? Maybe they should have looked at unpainted body panels in PP as on the new Gogoro Viva scooters?"

  • "What confuses me most is the bumpers at the front and the back. Having worked as a delivery driver for a bit as I went to design school, I have to say bumpers that actually protect the rest of the car and are sacrificial compared to the metal bodywork important (or maybe I was just a bad driver?!) The painted front side body panels, where there appears to be parking sensors, will take quite some beating, while the black front (I'm guessing unpainted plastic) will only protect in some situations. A feeling  of that style trumped function that also can be seen at the rear where the bumper (plastic?) appears to be painted, which is a really bad idea for such a workhorse of a vehicle. Other than that, I really like the concept and the design."

  • "I'd do like the way they have tried to solve the problem with size, but I'm not sure about the execution. Construction seems too complicated in relation to the problems it's solving, especially the drivetrain and chain."

  • "Much as I admire DiTullo, I'm thinking this is an too simplified way treat a complex problem. That said I have the same issue with other YouTube "designers" like TheSketchMonkey, where their work and fix is simply a 2D representation of much more complex 3D problem. I'm not a huge fan of Lexus current design direction, but I think it has served its purpose in establishing their own form language, which now others are copying rather badly, like Subaru (and BMW?). What I like about Lexus design is that it's designed on purpose to be rather fragmented and many-faceted, it's not like their designers weren't able make the different curves and lines meet up. I think many designers instinctively want to clean things up and make sense out of chaos, but sometimes thinking outside the box can create something unique and distinctive."

  • "Haha love this post. Next step is to contact one of these designers and let them tell they're story. What was the design brief and how much creative freedom did they have?"
    on: Why are WiFi Routers So Darned Ugly?
  • "Very good point, and I get kinda embarrassed hearing the quotes from my fellow designer at Mercedes: ""We were pushing for the elimination of hard work because it makes it clean and modern ... It's a completely different thing to operate. As designers we like simplicity." Seriously, what is this? Car design is already way too full of itself, but when this notion of "good design" is becoming a safety hazard, who's there to correct this obviously dangerous path? It's like a tobacco company starting to sell cigarettes without filter, because "we as designers like simplicity." Cars are already dangerous enough as they are, why and how are they allowed to make them more unsafe?"

  • "It's a shame the detailing is not as simple as the overall concept. The design team seems to have lost focus when they came to lower part of the car, which is really a bit of a mess."
