WARMING DESIGN creates FUTURE MOBILITY SOLUTIONS: Advanced automotive exteriors and interiors within the ecosystem Future Mobility, as well as shaping the worlds of experience-design, object-design and spacial-design.
WARMING DESIGN is currently working on a series of Future Mobility Projects for international clients, including vehicles for Evergrande Automotive Group (New EV Brand “Hengchi”), FlyNow Aviation GmbH (Future Autonomous Personal Aviation Drone), and others.
WARMING DESIGN is lead by Anders Warming, whose design influence is ranging from the ground-breaking design of the first BMW Z4, through a vast range of production-designs for BMW and MINI – to a catalogue of future concept vehicles, most recently the 2016 MINI Vision Next 100 and the 2017 Borgward Isabella Concept. Anders Warming has had chief designer roles at the brands BMW, MINI and Borgward, adding up to a 20+ years top-design experience.
WARMING DESIGN is driven by the need to be on the forefront of the next design movement; by the need to create, innovate and go beyond the known: to be AHEAD OF THE WAVE!
We believe in the power of intelligent and next level technology in order to create strategically sustainable products. We aim to make the difference through the character of aesthetics and its perception. We believe that the future concept of design will stretch well beyond ‘regular’ car-design: we will increasingly move towards creating holistic mobility within urban architecture and connected digital experiences.
In these fast moving times every design process will focus increasingly on delivering credible design-answers to the “Why”. Why do we make it? For whom do we create it?
The aim is to influence the ecosystem of the future mobility-experience: to establish seamless links between the future customer touch-points and all aspects of a holistic connected experience.
Our DESIGN PROCESS is a three-step process: Exploring, Creating, & Perfecting!
The first process-step is analysing why a future customer should be attracted to the message of a given product-solution. What is the context of a given mobility-offering, and what are the incentives to build? Based on this strategic assessment, we move forward to the next steps embedding the topics of ‘what’ and ‘how’ to build?
We illustrate and communicate ‘where’ and ‘when’ the product – or the experience – will be presented to a potential future customer. Key component is considering every possible future aesthetic-development and how these relate to a customer’s future behaviour. We aim to be ‘slightly ahead of the wave’ in order to ensure a high level of newness and desirability at market-launch – and for a long time thereafter!
A design process should always be saturated with inspiration and openness. Looking into the future – creating the next new remarkable thing – will always be based on our personal conviction and experience, and we always emphasise the importance of reaching the highest level of dialogue between ourselves and our clients!
