the G-wagon reinterpreted through a digital-lens

 

in a play of deconstruction, zyva studio and charlotte taylor unveil a reinterpretation of the G-wagon created with mercedes-benz. isolating and repurposing key elements of the iconic car, the team proposes a series of furniture pieces within a fictional scene. here, the digital world intersects with the motor world’s heritage of handmade craftsmanship. the project, dubbed ‘G-construction,’ is led by ART2PEOPLE, and developed by A2P founder can florian ahegger and 3D artist marco mori.

 

mercedes-benz is supporting the project as its G-class is enters into the world of NFT and is, in turn, established as an ‘NFG’ (non-fungible G-class). with a history spanning 40 years, the designers relaunch the iconic vehicle into a new digital space that is unique to this contemporary era.

the project tasked five international artists — including the team of zyva studio (see more) and charlotte taylor (see more) — to interpret the mercedes G-wagon in their own style. the five teams have created works that reflect on the fundamentals of what the car stands for. the works portray the iconic image of the G-class while elevating it to a digital work of art. the project leaders, artists collective ART2PEOPLE (see more here), note their goal to build a bridge between the two worlds of G-class enthusiasts and the NFT community — uniting prestige, scarcity, freedom and luxury.

g-construction: deconstructing the g-wagon

 

zyva studio founder architect anthony authié and interior designer charlotte taylor present their digital G-wagon series as a continuation of their long-standing collaboration. the duo curates the new environment in their distinctive style, integrating elements which recall their previous works like the villa ortizet which includes a massive circular conversation pit, much like the one shown as part of G-construction series. this time, the envisioned space is occupied by furniture pieces infused with elements of the G-class. in this way the project creates a contemporary twist on mercedes’ long heritage of craft.
