The BMW i Vision Circular stands for the BMW Group’s strategy to become the most sustainable manufacturer in the area of individual premium mobility. The Vision vehicle has been designed according to circular economic principles – from development down to manufacturing processes. The design vision gives us a glimpse at a compact vehicle for the year 2040 that is focused squarely on sustainability and luxury.
The vehicle of the future – according to BMW – was photographed in the circular studio of BMW Welt for Gauzy LTD by MATTHIAS ALETSEE, who also took care of post in-house.
The LCG® technology developed by Israeli nanotechnology start-up Gauzy (Light Control Glass) enables transparent materials such as glass to change to controlled levels of opaque – for privacy, individual shading, sun protection and transparent displays, transforming the spaces where we spend our most time. When installed in the windshields and rear or side windows of your car, the glass from Gauzy can moderate incoming light and offer shade, privacy as well as the transmission of hazard warnings or advertisements.
For its BMWi Vision Circular show car, BMW has created a visionary new headlight design, using the Gauzy SPD LCG(R) technology integrated in D&K automotive thin glazed glass. The all-electric car features dynamic shading headlights that support a futuristic exterior. When SPD is switched off, the headlights are hidden. When the car turns on, the SPD becomes transparent in response to an integrated system, instantly revealing headlights that illuminate the surrounding area.
An essential aspect of the BMWi Vision Circular is the term Joyful Fusion, an ingenious method of disassembly. Various components can be quickly and easily dismantled by means of detachable connections to separate the individual mono-materials and return them to the material cycle.
