Renault Twingo Interior Design Stunt

Published by Nadeem Muaddi on December 23rd, 2011

Renault recently asked four European artists to redesign the interior cabin of its all-new Twingo city car. The results are interesting – albeit highly impractical and kind of goofy and senseless. This is one publicity stunt I just don’t get.

The designers include an Italian chef, UK pop singer, French fashion designer and German interior designer who’s renown for finding new uses for old objects.

Motor Ward describes the interiors as follows:

Scabin Pasta Twingo by Davide Scabin: This one’s designed by the Italian chef and features all the components of Italian cuisine with, as a centrepoint for this world of emotions, that essential: pasta.

Twingo Goes Pop by Nicola Roberts: This one’s very girly and reflects on Nicola’s life which consists of three things: music, fashion and coffee. So the car gets a coffee machine, combined with clothes, personalised portable music player, hair dryer and a make-up counter in the front.

Twingo 55 FBG by Jean-Charles de Castelbajac: This Twingo features period furniture, candelabras and polished parquet flooring. A nod to the sumptuous luxury of the Elysées, complemented by its matt black bodyshell and white rimmed tyres.

Twingo Reading Room by Nils Holger Moormann: We quite like this one because of its simple idea and great execution. The designer says it is a place of peace, rest and meditation. Features include library, a big sofa, fireplace.Like I said… I just don’t get it.
