Kin-aesthetic Car

Sangwoo Lee’s VW Optism concept finds inspiration from optical art, a style that makes visual kinetics through optical illusion. Depending on the viewers perspective, the surface changes character making the facade an interactive sculpture of sorts. The directional lines can be found everywhere from the wheels to the seats as it continues the flow of movement to the interior.

    Do the stripes serve any non-aesthetic purpose? Do they help decrease wind resistance? Or are they only there to look cool and block your vision?

    And to cut up any pedestrians you might run in to…

  • Hunter says:

    By my understanding, they actually make the car less aerodynamic. Remember, the most aerodynamic shape in existence is a drop of water.

    So no, they certainly look cool and protect from unwanted theft from high-speed pedestrians (h/t Quintin), but they actually detract from the vehicle’s overall performance.
