Design students create future Bentley

Design students create future Bentley

Seems like kids these days all want a job designing cars. But even with the correct training, it’s still a big ask for an aspiring auto stylist to break into the field. Bentley, however, has given a handful of transportation design students a crack at working in its design department.

The program is being held in conjunction with the graduate Vehicle Design Course at the Royal College of Art in London. Eighteen students spent the last few months being shown the ropes by lead exterior designer Raul Pires, with the four top candidates — Marten Wallgren (Sweden), Mikka Heikkinen (Finland), David Seesing (Germany) and Bora Kim (South Korea) — shortlisted for further collaboration.

Each student created a novel, futuristic take on the Bentley design ethos, and from among them one will be chosen for a full-time position in Bentley’s design studio.
