Pocketsquare to premiere Panasonic's driver-focussed HMI interior concept at NAIASFri, 10 Jan 2014 00:00:00 -0800
Erstwhile GM interior design chief David Lyon, alongside former GM engineer Nina Mital and ex-Ford designer Gary Braddock – the three members of new Michigan-based design consultancy Pocketsquare – will have the first fruits of their new venture displayed at the NAIAS in Detroit in the form of Panasonic's advanced interior design concept.
The interior makes use of Panasonic's new range of head-up displays and smart clusters to reduce driver distraction in advance of the latest proposed NHTSA legislation. The system is said to exceed these measures by as much as 35 per cent.
The interior will be shown in COBO hall on Monday 13 January at 17:35 EST, leaving you just enough time to head to Camilo Pardo's annual designers night.
Full details of Pocketsquare and the Panasonic interior to follow.
