Speed forms and their provocations of emotionality are in the blood of transportation designers, continuously looking to the core sense of their craft. Pininfarina’s legacy is tied to these roots, in the artistic sense of proportions, movements, study of volumes and reflections; from a pencil to an air traffic control tower, it is always the common thread connecting everything we do. The Cisitalia 202 was the first car, recognized as Art, to enter permanent display at the MoMA of New York. With this speed form sculpture, we reveal the earlier stages of our process, very typical of car design in heeding reflections even more so than shapes, and creating movement through experience from all points of view. Marrying aesthetic evocation with functional quality, through pureness of shape and expression of emotion, this sculpture and its further iterative sizes are just the beginning, the first, and we want to be consistent to create more to place within our projects around the world. On the anniversary of our fourth year here in Miami, we are happy to be in strong contact with the energy of Art Basel and the inspiration of fellow artists, and humbly very proud to realize our desire to work together in a world which has always been part of our heritage, in the harmonious interplay of Art and Design.
