Mercedes-Benz Stand

LAS VEGAS 2018 (USA)

Mercedes-Benz presents the intuitive and adaptive multimedia-system „MBUX – Mercedes-Benz User Experience“ and trendsetting show cars at the CES 2018 in Las Vegas.

formTL and jangled nerves have optimized and enhanced the distinguishing element of the “Silverflow“ for its appearance at the fairs in Las Vegas and Barcelona.

Double layered silver textile bands have replaced the aluminium slats on the “Silverflow”. These bands span between the supporting tube and the gentle curvature of the edging cables. The structure´s low -weight makes it particularly economical.

The geometry, created by the interaction of the cable with the tube border and the bands, is governed solely the laws of physics.
