We asked the IED Turin students of the Transportation Design course to talk about their projects focusing on their sustainability element.
“What is your project and why it can be considered sustainable?” is the question, and below you can find their answers!

IED Turin, that was the only Design Academy which took part to Fuori Salone with some of its students, decided to reply to our call for The Youth Design Day in Japan. IED Turin proposed to us some of its Transportation Design students to participate to our contest.
As illustrated on the IED Turin webpage about Transportation Design class, the aim of the course is that to form Transportation Designers: “The Transportation Designer is able to reconcile aspects of style, technique, aerodynamics, production feasibility and ergonomics. This kind of designer must have a profound understanding of the product and the functions that the consumer is looking for, so as to be able to have a clear idea about the relationship between design and marketing, innovation and commercial requirements along with the social trend and the economic background in which he is operating.”
We selected five students with this profile and soon we are presenting their projects, that will be then exhibited by November at the Italian Cultural Institute in Osaka, Japan. The five students are:
- Emanuele Tommassorri
- Manuel Negri
- Matteo Prola
- Mirko Pocobello
- Tommaso Lorenzini
Their projects concern Sustainable Mobility and are conceived for important brands like Ferrari, Honda and Maserati between the others. Moreover, the projects they propose are bike-projects, which is an innovative aspect for these car traditional brands.
