Discipline: Professional Concept

MINI entrusted the design of the glasses, the color scheme and the digital user experience to Designworks. This was where a technical device was turned into a lifestyle product that succeeds in translating the MINI design idiom to eyewear. When it came to designing the AR visuals, it was the seamless integration that posed the greatest challenge. Designworks devised a user experience for MINI that allows the wearer of the glasses to perceive the various AR states in a very realistic form with a natural flow. The “motion design” concept therefore offers a means of orientation and structure to make it easier for the user to find their bearings.
