Jaguar-inspired art installation created by Royal College of Art students on show at Clerkenwell Design Week.
As the UK’s top art school, the Royal College of Art has some notable alumni. Filmmaking siblings Ridley and Tony Scott, sculptor Henry Moore and artist Tracey Emin all studied at the central London design institution. As did several Jaguar designers, including current design chief Ian Callum. This Jaguar-inspired art installation was recently created by two of its students, following a brief to create an exterior and interior form study, expressing their vision of Jag’s future design language.
Nine teams made up of some of the best car design students in the world had two weeks to conceive and present their proposals to the Jaguar Advance Design team. The submission by students Ewan Gallimore and Claire Miller (remember the names) was selected as the favorite, and within three days the aspiring designers found themselves in Coventry, working with Jaguar in the studio and developing the installation using the same facilities and technologies the carmaker uses when creating concepts and production designs. The installation is currently being exhibited at the Clerkenwell Design Week that runs until May 23.
