Tokyo Auto-Otaku 2015: The Cut & Sewn BMW i3

Surprises are always fun (the good ones as least), most people enjoy a surprise or two, so upon landing in Tokyo and on my way out to Yodabashi Akihabara for a data sim card, i chanced upon this very uniquely decorated i3 in BMW Group Studio right next to Tokyo Station.

The artwork was a collaboration with Milk Japon, a children’s magazine. Using “cut & sewn” textile sheets to create patterns that was used as a wrap for the car.

Hopefully they kept the wrap when the car eventually got moved out of the showroom. I think it looks really fresh.
