+ About Jaime Bouzaglo, the designer
Born in Alcazar (Spanish Morocco) and educated in Barcelona. Since his youth, Bouzaglo has displayed a natural talent for design. In 1973, at the age of just 14, he was already at work at his uncle’s architecture studio. He studied with Jean-François Zevaco, the well-known French architect. He developed a rigorous approach to his design work and there is a deep sensitivity which is reflected in his current creations. In 1998 he founded Crear, a company specialising in design, which now has clients all over the world. Some years later, Nino Cerruti commissioned the creation of boutique in Europe. Since then, things have picked up speed. He became the exclusive designer of the “Cerruti 1881” boutiques in Paris and flew on to create 17 more boutiques in Kobe, Hong Kong, Shanghai, Kuala Lumpur, Dusseldorf, Paris, Oporto, London, Beijing, Madrid, Singapore and Toronto. He also went on to design Nino Cerruti stores in Tokyo, Hiroshima, New York and the Giorgio Emporio boutique in Toronto. Passionate about design, Bouzaglo creates commercial concepts which are easy to understand. Image, furniture, the atmosphere, as well as small accessories which go to define the space used.
BMW GINA Light Visionary Model Concept car — by Material ConneXion
At first, the idea of a fabric-skinned car seemed intriguing yet impossible to former BMW Design Director Chris Bangle. But after researching highstrength and tear-resistant textiles at Material ConneXion’s Library in New York, he and his team decided to pursue the concept further. Their efforts led to the “GINA” – a visionary shape-shifting sports car made from polyurethane-coated Lycra stretched over a wire aluminum frame. While only a concept car, the GINA’s innovative design is already inspiring a new wave of sleek, lightweight, and fuel-efficient automobiles.
