At the end of this long year’s worth of pandemic ups and downs, we take a positive view on the whole, thanks to the multiple interior innovations which have been revealed along the year. Cockpit and HMI are at the center of the interior revolution, where, among others, software is the key enabler.
This week’s In-depth looks at how automakers and tier-1s are expanding their capabilities in the interior domain, mainly through partnership with giant digital tech companies. Lots of interior areas are involved—sustainable materials, functional surfaces, seating systems, design color and materials, lighting, air quality, plastic and materials in general—really, all the domains that DVN Interior covers every week.
This edition marks the last episode of our mobility philosophy series, Car Interiors Unplugged, confirming that the interior is the literal and figurative seat of our mobile lives.
The Design Lounge will come back next year, though we’ll still miss Nick who contributed to it so much.
We’ll be on a brief hiatus next week and come back on 6 January with news from CES which has become the leading venue for showing off relevant innovation, with more and more automotive tech.
May your 2022 be full of joy, peace, health, happy surprises, and success. We’re hard at work to ensure a steady supply of enjoyable, informative reading in the DVN Interior Newsletter.
We’re glad you’re here, and we thank you for your support. Stay safe!
