Mazda Motor Corporation has unveiled Mazda-designed artwork entitled the “Bike by KODO concept” and the “Sofa by KODO concept.” Both concept designs were on display as part of the “Mazda Design: The Car as Art” exhibition in Milan, Italy on April 14-19, 2015.
According to Mazda, both the bike and sofa were inspired by their “KODO— Soul of Motion” design philosophy. The concept designs feature flowing lines that are meant to capture the spirit of movement and “express the powerful motion of life, such as that displayed by animals in the wild.”
“Bike by KODO concept” has a minimalist structure and features a “mixture of dynamism and allure” similar to the styling of the Mazda MX-5. “Sofa by KODO concept” is a collaboration between Mazda and Italian furniture makers and was made to more closely resemble the design of the Mazda CX-3. According to Mazda, “(It) exhibits an exquisite blend of Mazda Design’s refined sensibilities and fine Italian craftsmanship backed by a long tradition of furniture-making.”
In recent years, Mazda has become more focused on design. Masahiro Moro, Mazda’s Managing Executive Officer, said “Over the past few years, design has become an essential part of who we are, adding an artistic value to the entire Mazda brand experience.”

The Chevrolet-FNR concept car was shown at this year’s Shangai Auto Show on April 21, 2015. It is a self-driving electric vehicle and offers a glimpse into the distant future of the automotive world.
The Chevrolet-FNR has see-through wheels and includes “dragonfly dual swing doors.” According to New York Daily News, “The doors and rear bodywork (open) to reveal a cabin straight out of a science-fiction movie.” The dash is a huge, glowing touch-screen, and the seats are a mixture of sharp angles and webbing. In order to start the Chevrolet-FNR, drivers must have their eyeballs scanned through an “iris recognition” system.
Additionally, the wheels of the Chevrolet-FNR concept car are magnetic and feature hubless wheel electric motors. According to New York Daily News, this means that “they not only hover in space, they also power the car.” The headlights are crystal laser and the tail-lamps are fit. This car also features clear door panels and accented blue lighting.
The Chevrolet-FNR concept car is meant to be recharged with a wireless system and is equipped with sensors so the car can drive itself without any human intervention.
The Chevrolet-FNR concept car is far from being a reality, but check out our inventory of other Chevrolet vehicles in the meantime.
