During my stay at Spyker Cars I created many livery variations for the GT2-R competition cars. Eventually the Spyker ‘S’ was draped over each corner of the car and the color scheme could easily be adjusted to the main sponsor’s corporate style. Since 2005, the competition Spykers were seen in different color combinations, but always with the same S-lines running across the car’s body.
The Mitka is an environmentally friendly vehicle, which has been developed back in 1999/2000, in a joint research project for future mobility. Michiel was given a blank sheet to develop this all new concept in cooperation with the Delft Technical University, Nike Europe, TNO, Gazelle and Van der Veer Design. The Mitka is specifically designed for distances between 5 and 20 kilometers and has several innovative design features, such as a folding roof system, electrical power assistance and a tilting three-wheel chassis design for natural corner leaning.
The Dutch professional cyclist Jan Janssen became the first Dutchman ever to win the Tour de France in 1968. After his professional career he decided to fill the growing need for high quality custom built bicycles. Since 1972 the family-owned company builds high-end sports bicycles for the demanding professional and semi-professional cyclist. All their bikes are tailor made to personal perfection for each specific client. See their latest collection here.
German Tuning company Edo Competition was the initiator of this highly unusual and unique art-car. The original artwork for this project was provided by fashion artist Christian Audigier. My job was to get inspired and digitally modify Audigier’s work to be applied onto the body and into the interior of a Lamborghini Murciélago LP710. Only 5 Audigier Lamborghinis were available.
Do not try to explain an object of art with words
Words can never do justice to its true meaning
and will eventually kill the essence
Give it a single name instead
enjoy its beauty
and it will come to life
The most valuable thing in art is the thing you cannot explain
