This year at Salon Prive, one of the classiest and most prestigious car shows of the year, the Royal College of Art will host the Concours of the Future design exhibition. Design students are asked to come up with modern interpretations of iconic Concours-winning cars, the best of which will be shown during the event.
The works of the design students will be judged by a panel of adjudicators, including Dale Harrow, Head of the RCA Vehicle Design programme; Giles Taylor, Director of Design, Rolls-Royce Motor Cars Ltd; Peter Schreyer, Chief Design Officer, Hyundai and Kia Motors; and Peter Horbury, Vice President – Design, Geely, headed by leading automotive designer and RCA visiting professor, Peter Stevens.
The top three designers will be presented with trophies designed and manufactured by Bridge of Weir Leather Company and a magnum of Pommery champagne. But that’s nothing compared to what they have in store for the overall winner. The winner will be invited to Milan for a behind-the-scenes tour and design master-class with Andrea Zagato at the Zagato Design Studio. That is a designer’s wet dream!
