(“The Art of Living” is also the title of the Publishing’s group magazine) Volvo will show the vertical display (or sculpture) of the Interiors of the Concept XC Coupé, first presented at the Detroit Motorshow in January of this year. This display expresses on the one hand Volvo’s philosophy of “Designed around you” aiming at functionality and on the other a more artistic approach to design. Through this display Volvo emphasizes how lines, design and light are essential whilst maintaining its affinity to the Scandinavian design tradition.
