Clerkenwell Design Week

Amplify + Porsche driven by design at Clerkenwell Design Week...


Clerkenwell Design Week is the UK’s leading independent design festival, and celebration of the best design and engineering from around the world.

As a proud partner of the festival, Porsche wanted to showcase how its latest designs continue to drive the brand forward. They also wanted to inspire a new generation of creatives and aspirational drivers.

We challenged ourselves to create an installation that highlighted not only the design brilliance of Porsche engineering but also an experience that perfectly showcased the beauty of the Taycan Cross Turismo.

Insight + Strategy

Porsche's principle has always been that function and beauty are inseparable.

So, we got right to the heart of the Taycan’s electric motor to turn one of the car’s most minor design details into a beautiful installation celebrating the car and its performance.

Knowing Porsche wanted to connect with a more youthful demographic and the next wave of creative leaders, we set out to tell a story that appealed to core Porsche lovers and the new Luxurians.

As well as being cultural magpies and conscious consumers, this new audience isn’t into gimmicks and searches for value, function, and form.

By revealing the purity of the car’s design, we could humanise the practicality of the Taycan Cross Turismo without diminishing the beauty or excitement of experiencing a Porsche for the first time.

Inspired by the hairpin-winding at the centre of the Taycan’s electric motor, we created a structural and architectural motif that brought an unconventional and technically complex part of the manufacturing process to life.

We also integrated apertures into the shroud so that people could view the Taycan Cross Turismo from every angle.

A central installation at the heart of Clerkenwell Design Week 2022, our space challenged visitors’ perception of Porsche design and inspired them to take a closer look at the car driving the next wave of automotive adventure and electric vehicle performance.
