Dirk Ploos van Amstel creates transparent, open projects in a style that echoes the strength and pop immediacy of cartoons.
His creations reflect the belief that users form a stronger bond with products when their operation is clearly shown. In other words, when function is an integral part of form.
In the specific of SVING, the “key and lock” mechanism is extracted from its hiding place inside the door panel and connected directly to the handle.
The result: a clear, linear union for a balanced image.
