Air Workshop,
with Volvo Cars

Aerodynamics are essential for a smooth ride. Jólan van der Wiel charted the natural forces that act on cars and ways that we can visualise and materialise airflows. For Volvo he developed an installation that focusses on the shape that allows the car to roll – the wheel. Using the forces of air and gravity, a wheel is built up layer by layer, and within a conceptual setting that can be visited by the public.
