Automotive Design – Example Mercedes-Benz” in the
Pinakothek der Moderne in Munich
Stuttgart - The Mercedes-Benz
brand is the world's oldest and most renowned automobile brand.
In the more than 120-year history of the brand, the design of
the vehicles always has played an outstanding role, and over the
decades numerous icons of automotive design have been created.
In the “Milestones Automotive
Design” exhibition the Pinakothek der Moderne (modern art
museum) in Munich is presenting seven vehicles of the
Mercedes-Benz brand, beginning with the “Blitzen Benz” of 1909
and extending down to the Mercedes-Benz CLS of 2004. In
conjunction with the cars, the exhibition also focuses on the
design work. This is illustrated with drafts, sketches,
renderings, tapes and models. Neue Sammlung Design presents a
walk-in installation in which the cars are featured as the
outcome of design processes.
The exhibition runs from the 25th
of June to the 14th of September 2008. Open daily except
Mondays, from 10 a.m. to 6 p.m.
