An effective and reliable transportation industry has always been essential for economic growth. The development of various modes of sustainable, efficient transportation is undoubtedly one of the most important prerequisites for the success of future mobility. Today, it is not only the designers working for mobility manufacturers who define what this future will look like. Many architects, artists, and designers have come up with innovative concepts that offer fresh and surprising perspectives on mobility design.Accelerate features the work of approximately ten designers from within the mobility industry and twice as many creative professionals from other disciplines or fields. Their visions and designs—some conceptual, some completed—are explained in individual interviews and illustrated with an abundance of drawings, 3D visuals, and photographs. This book transcends the automotive sector, offering an insight into the world of bikes, motorcycles, yachts, and airplanes, not to mention an additional array of innovative vehicles and systems designed to move people and goods.Accelerate targets an extensive readership of designers, architects, artists, technologists, information and communication technology experts, students, and teachers- a wide range of professionals representing the mobility industry and all those with a personal interest in the subject.Intersection magazine and Frame Publishers combined forces, sharing knowledge and expertise in the areas of mobility and design, to produce this exciting book. Look for Accelerate in April 2011 at the Salone del Mobile in Milan, where the book will be launched.
