Swiss design students shape the future of the Mini’s steering wheel

A steering wheel made of linen – seriously? Jein: You can take students’ ideas from Lausanne CEO to future steering wheel seriously BMW subsidiary Mini Does not. Smile yes – laugh no: It is precisely through such a brainstorming that the design of the future is born. But the steering wheel is round. Still: Because in the future, the cap will be used rarely or never in self-driving cars – and that will change everything.

The idea for the “Ecal x Mini” project between Switzerland and Mini Munich (D) came from Mini Switzerland a year and a half ago. The Cantonal School of Art and Design (Ecal) in Lausanne then proposed the steering wheel as car design objects. Crazy today, really tomorrow: Where does the design journey go with the steering wheel of the future?
