Volvo Concept You: design sketches

WeDesignVolvo has published extensive information and image galleries that document the design development of the Concept You, the luxury sedan unveiled at Frankfurt.


Volvo Concept You Design SketchWeDesignVolvo is a Tumblr page created to directly “communicate thoughts and inspiration of Volvo designers”.

The articles posted so far feature design sketches, videos and some insights on the Concept You, the luxury show car presented at the 2011 Frankfurt Motor Show.

As the designers explain, the Concept You was influenced by the brand’s heritage and by Scandinavian Design.

Among the sources of inspiration is the hood of the PV444/PV544 models (1943-1966), which rises upwards from the body surfaces, while the front air intakes are reminiscent of the Volvo Amazon (1956-1970).

For the interior, based on the motto “designed around you”, Volvo designers have adopted a user-centered approach, creating two separate zones focused on the driver at the front and on passengers at the rear.

The atmosphere is characterized by a contrast of light and dark tones, which are also used to visually differentiate the front and rear sections.
