What should a car designed for a woman look like, and how should it function? Ask Lisbon-based designer Marcelo Aguiar, whose "Seat W" auto concept won the 4th Seat/Automagazine Design Contest (theme: Design a car for the modern woman).
The Seat W integrates several simple, yet useful, solutions, that make it user-friendly in a woman's everyday life, such as storage spaces inside; partial opening of the trunk; side doors opening from the center give good access to the interior and its seats (design inspired by Verner Panton's "Panton Chair"); the glazed surface "from top to bottom" making it easier to watch everything around.
There is easy access to the refrigerator liquid, motor oil and windshield liquid without the need to open the hood and an actual drawer that carries the spare tyre, for those situations that may be less frequent and considered as less attractive from the feminine point of view. The woman's independence is strengthened by making everything easy and simple.
