Lo Res Concept CarJanuary 2012
United Nude may take much of its inspiration from architectural structures, yet we do not only attribute these to the fine art of designing shoes. After the launch of the Lo Res shoe and the Lo Res chair our largest moving ambition is the making of a Lo Res car.
The Lo Res project and its objects are made with the Lo Res design method, developed by United Nude. Playing with the revolutionary virtues of a 3D scanner, United Nude’s computer aided designers found lowering the resolution would break shapes down to a multitude of triangular surfaces, not unlike a cut diamond. The lower the resolution the more abstract the shape.
The Lo Res car series originates from lowering the 3D resolution of a Lamborghini Countach. United Nude life size Lo Res car sculptures have been exhibited at the Gwangju Design Biennale in Korea and another is on permanent display in our New York Flagship store. The conceptual Lo Res car currently being built represents the lowest 3D resolution interpretation of the Lamborghini.
The vehicle will have neither doors nor mirrors. To enter, the entire body will raise electronically. Based on top of a golf cart chassis, the result will be a 50 km/h moving sculpture.
f you cannot wait and you want your Lo Res objects now, we kindly remind you of our shoes and chair which go by the same name.
