January 29, 2015
From Congo-Brazzaville, Steeve Burkhalter designed the interior of the Mercedes S-Class coupe concept car. He graduated from the Créapôle School in Design Transport and Mobility in 2010 and is now interior designer at Mercedes.

His research project, which has now materialized inside the concept car of the Mercedes S-Class coupe, was as follows:

If the interior of this concept car, which could be marketed in a few years, is very sleek and elegant, one cannot say the opposite of the outside shape of the vehicle, too. It is, therefore, a sleek and refined indoor/outdoor marriage that can be partly associated to the African creative genius.
