Modern Surfaces Require Original Design Approaches

The Automobile Interior is Undergoing Change

Current trends in the automotive industry like e-mobility, shared mobility and autonomous driving, increase the industry’s expectations and demands placed on interior materials. These trends shift the focus to the inside of vehicles. Especially, surfaces are being given more attention to. So that they must meet strict design standards, while simultaneously fitting into the new mobility concepts. Surfaces therefore need to become more flexible and diverse in function and esthetic.

It has always been important for us to take the environment and our surroundings into consideration, when developing and coming up with new innovative ideas. On the one hand, we are working on how we could make our customers feel in tune with their vehicle. And on the other hand, we are trying to learn from new living concepts and applying these to surface materials for the automotive industry.

Panel Films Vol. D

for Passenger and Commercial Vehicles

The Panel Films Vol. D design collection demonstrates that there are design alternatives for the interior that break new ground and set standards. The wood, textile, stone, and hybrid look are modern and unconventional for the applications. However, they are also consistent because the car becomes a third space that combines living space, mobile space, office, and wellness area. As a result, it is important that surfaces exude an air of coziness, comfort as well as coolness. They must be robust and easy to clean, applicable to all components and impressive from a technical standpoint.
