Mercedes-Benz A-Class 2018: Interior Design | I made it (Part 4)


The first object I designed and made myself was the guitar I made when I was 14 years old. My name is Peter Balko. My job is Creative Interior Design Manager at Mercedes-Benz. Coming from my interests in music and arts I’m always looking for harmony in shapes and forms. For the new A-Class interior, I developed with my designers the design of the dashboard, the doors, the middle tunnel and the seats. My favourite feature in the A-Class interior is the air vent. The appearance reminds me of an aircraft turbine engine. Good design always includes a human part in it. This could be, for example, the door handle in the car. Or it is the shape of the guitar that is comfortably lying on your knees. I think between interior designers and musicians there are a lot of links in between. You have the composition, you have the harmony. You try to create a special character, a special style of a music or a special style of an interior. I think building this first guitar is definitely one of the reasons, why I became a car designer. The strategy is to not forget that in the end it’s the expressive result that impresses people.

I absolutely very much doubt that you and your harmony of music et cetera were the inspiration behind the interior most likely a team sat with you to get this perfected to what is. I dislike BULLSHIT. But great way to advertise fools!
