Jaguar design inspired artwork by RCA students

Earlier this week a Jaguar inspired automotive installation created by RCA (Royal College of Art) students Ewan Gallimore and Claire Miller, was unveiled to an exclusive audience at the opening of the Clerkenwell Design Week.

The installation was created in association with Jaguar’s Advance Design team in Whitley, Coventry, using many of the technologies and facilities employed in the creation of Jaguar concept cars and production designs.

Nine teams comprised of students from both vehicle design and textile design backgrounds presented their outstanding proposals and after much deliberation on the part of the Jaguar Advance Design team, the submission of Ewan Gallimore and Claire Miller eventually emerged as the favourite.

According to Ewan and Claire, “Jaguar has a long history of ground-breaking design so we knew we needed to create something truly special to catch the eye of Jaguar Advanced Design Director, Julian Thomson. We began the project by looking at light, specifically the way the light falls within the space at Clerkenwell. We thought about how our form could accentuate this light and convey volume through its use of materials and our knowledge of how these materials react with one another.

The students had just two weeks to conceive and present their design proposals and within three days of announcing the winning submission, Ewan and Claire were in the Jaguar Advanced Design studio discussing how best to proceed with the development of their installation.
