Beckmans at Formex

Between August 30 and September 2, Product Design 2 will be showing car seat covers at the Formex Fair in lvsj.

The project is a design collaboration with Artex, Sweden’s largest sewing industry with customers within the car industry, furniture industry and within the architect industry. Since the 1930’s, Artex has also been market leader in sales of car seat covers.

In collaboration with the company’s sewers and designers, ten different designs have been produced by ten students, a project which is part of Artex work with developing the modern car seat cover. The students have been inspired by things as different as the societies of hymenopterana, the dinner jacket and the nice feeling of dressing up, to animals that have been killed in traffic. With catchwords such as fiction, aesthetics, ergonomics, asymmetry, function and ecology, the students have aimed at adding additional dimensions to the traditional purpose of the car seat cover.

Tutors: Gunnel Sahlin, designer at Artex and Jan Loftén, Course Director, Product Design,
