Design Miami: Bentley Elements

Light by Massimo Uberti

Shown at Design Miami last week, Light by Italian artist Massimo Uberti is the first in the Bentley Elements series of art commissions from the luxury British auto company.

Inspired by the neon-lit vehicle audit bays in the English factory, the installation takes the form of a graphic linear structure. The minimal frame design is made from hand-blown neon lighting tubes that reference the industrial building, while the trestle table and chair inside pay homage to the craftsmen who make each vehicle.

For more examples of gridded structures and frame-like designs, see our recent Wire Frames report, an update on the Autumn/Winter 2013-14 Colour Spectrum. For other art and auto collaborations, see Capturing Speed with Colour and Milan 2014: Peugeot Design Lab.
