swedish car company volvo has continued their exploration into the future of driving with their collaboration with dutch design studio van eijk & van der lubbe. during dutch design week 2015, the designer duo has unveiled ‘outward-looking’ – a concept car formed by a series of stacked, mirrored prisms that reference architecture and the environment.
