Designing the customized car: From Camatte to Copen
& collect
The Camatte design concept by Toyota Design is a skeleton frame upon which various body panels can be attached. The concept for interchangeable panels has been put into production on the Daihatsu Copen roadster. Daihatsu is a wholly owned subsidiary of Toyota. On the Daihatsu Copen, the "Dress-Formation" concept offers exchangeable resin panels which can be exchanged after purchase.
ボディの外板を樹脂にし、着脱できるようにする新発想。クルマのデザインは購入前に決めるという固定概念を覆し、ライフスタイルに合わせ、購入後でも服をコーディネートする感覚で、いつでも自由に形や柄、空力特性が変えられるという新しい価値を生みました。COPENは、人とクルマの関係も変えていきます。
