1st place for Silesian University of Technology
Renault contest winner - Jakub Fochtman

Jakub Fochtman, student from the Faculty of Architecture, won the contest for young designers: “Renault. Passion for design & innovation”. Modern interior of a high-class SUV, designed by our student, turned out to be the best out of all submitted projects.

Contest participants had to design an interior for a high-class Renault SUV, next generation Coleos. Project of Jakub Fochtman was characterized by minimalism, intuitiveness and accessibility, and all based on modern technology. Instead of mechanic solutions he included touch elements, instead of car key – iris and fingerprint readers. The main idea behind this design was the feeling of control using only the hand, the whole car in arm’s reach.

According to the winner’s description: “The designed interior does not divert very far from those currently in production. The main difference lies in technology and used materials. The dashboard and main panel, which spreads from the gearbox to rear seats, consists of multimedia panels, displaying data, images and all parameters allowing for car customisation. Tactile solutions were also implemented in the steering wheel, which has a video camera equipped with iris and fingerprint readers, substituting car key or vehicle card, which allows the automatic car personalization.

This year’s edition of the contest is the second one participated by Jakub Fochtman. Last year, he managed to reach the final stage of the contest, and this year he was unmatched. As a reward, he will travel to Paris, to visit the Design Headquarters of Renault, where he will have the opportunity to observe the works. Moreover, for two weeks he will have the opportunity to drive Renault Coleos.
