LO RES CAR sculpture

First Floor - Artistry

2010 | United Nude | Rem D. Koolhaas

United Nude’s Lo Res design method was used to create a series of Lamborghini Countachinspired designs, which lowered the iconic car’s 3D resolution via a multiple step process. Each step reduces the number of points describing the overall shape, simultaneously enlarging and reducing the number of polygons, which results in an increasingly abstract form. Constructed of steel and wrapped in a mirror-like film, the numerous surfaces produced across the massive sculpture reflect and distort its surrounding environment while maintaining a familiar and previously established outline.
