Scifi Hero #2: Syd Mead

In my first weeks at Volvo Product Design I found myself in a meeting room staring at some pictures on the wall. A colleague asked 'Can you guess who drew those?', I replied that although it could not be the case they looked like something Syd Mead would have draw.

It turns out that indeed Syd Mead did draw them and at one time used to work as a designer in the company. After asking for quite some time I finally got permission to share them outside.

Starting here with one of my favourites, I always have a soft spot for asymmetrical design. I am hoping at some point to have some free time to model and print these out!
