This year’s presenters included Thomas Ingenlath, senior vice president for design at Volvo, who spoke about Scandinavian design in relation to the Swedish automaker’s new design language. He cited the Volvo XC90, the first production car designed under his leadership, which will make its world premiere at the Paris auto show later this week.

Future Concept of Jet Travel
Gareth Davies: “I challenged the team to break out of conventional thinking with regards to a business jet

We quickly settled on the controversial yet interesting idea of removing the windows from
the cabin and using existing or very near future technology to display the exterior
environment on flexible screens, which cover the walls and ceiling of the cabin, via external cameras.
The user experience is greatly enhanced by directly engaging the passengers with the
environment outside, giving an unhindered panoramic view .”
