Volvo Cars has unveiled a unique piece of art, based on the interior of the forthcoming new S90 Excellence, Volvo Cars’ top-of-the-line model in the S90 range.
The sculpture clearly illustrates how the Volvo Lounge Console could look in the new S90 Excellence, and Volvo Cars’ commitment to deliver a new and exciting take on progressive luxury.
“We had such positive feedback with our original Lounge Console Concept in the XC90 that we wanted to take it a step closer to reality with an S90 Excellence interior. With this interior we wanted to create a piece of art, a sculpture. We’ve taken many of the original concepts and brought them to life,” says Robin Page, Vice President Interior Design at Volvo Cars.
Starting at the rear, the Volvo Cars Design Team added the most comfortable seating and the supreme convenience of a centre control panel for features such as the heated- and cooled cup holders, the sound system, massage functions and the large multi-media screen. The rear armrest is home to a refrigeration unit and comes complete with two hand-cut crystal glasses from Swedish glassmaker Orrefors.
“One of the key elements is the removal of the front passenger seat. We removed it to provide unrestricted forward visibility, a sense of space and an influx of light. It has an immediate and extremely calming effect,” continues Page.
The Lounge Console Concept in the S90 Excellence interior provides three comfortable alternatives – a mobile working station that combines a fold-out work table and large screen for checking emails or video conferencing; a pure entertainment mode where one can catch up on the latest Netflix shows; a pure relaxation mode where one can recline the seat, enjoy a cold drink from the fridge and relax with one’s feet on the heated foot support.
“We do things differently at Volvo Cars – we always have. Our distinctive approach to interior design aims to deliver a luxurious and calming experience. The art of Scandinavian design is all about enhancing life experiences, and this is what Volvo Cars does best,” concludes Thomas Ingenlath, Senior Vice President, Design, at Volvo Car Group.
