For the IAAD. Scholarships Contest 2022, participants have to inspire users by identifying one of the following emotional needs based on Pininfarina’s brand values: purity, elegance and innovation.

BRIEF

For the first time in its 91 years history, Pininfarina presented in July 2021 a virtual concept car called Teorema.

With the main mission to make the journey as pleasurable as the destination, Teorema is an electric, autonomous vehicle, entirely developed with virtual reality technologies only.

This futuristic vehicle is built on a modular electric chassis creating an original pentagonal five-seater environment with an innovative space-saving design.

From the outside, the absence of side doors gives it a great stylistic lightness.

With this project, Pininfarina wanted to delineate its vision of the future of mobility: high interaction between passengers, the vehicle and the external environment through open and shared spaces.

What are we asking you to do?

You have been assigned to imagine a custom edition of Teorema called “Pininfarina Teorema | enjoy the uniqueness.”

Choose your favorite combination of colors and materials according to the project, interpreting the interiors and the exteriors of the vehicle, and trying to customize your concept car in every nuance, bespoke in every detail.

To enhance the value of the brand, always keep in mind Pininfarina’s three main design principles: purity, elegance, and innovation.
