A MESSAGE FROM GIANCARLO PERINI, PUBLISHER.

Car designers around the world, please help us to raise this baby. Make it yours.

Yes, you can!

Through the past five years I have been running a blog dedicated to car design with an experimental approach. I was eager to establish a bridge with the design community and to gain experience on the web.

Now, time has come for a new project with broader goals, focuses and reach.

The goal is to establish a very lively «Café littéraire» where professional designers, design educators and students, car and design enthusiasts meet, show their ideas, discuss design matters and trends, contribute with their own reports and stories to the development of a modern design culture, with past experiences and inputs from different cultures.

Please subscribe to our " Newsletter" to keep up with the progress Automotive Design Club International.

And, please, invite all your friends to join us, here and now.

Work is in progress. Be part of it!

Features such as colored glazing for tinted sunroofs and windows aft of the “B” pillar are now possible along with gaps in the window, sharp corners, smooth corner radii or complex three dimensional shapes. These features are undesirable, unmoldable or cost-prohibitive with laminated or tempered glass. PC auto glazing permits parts integration previously not possible. It is possible to create a roof-module frame and optical panel in one piece.

    Molding heating/defrosting elements and fractal antennas into a PC window panel is also possible using in-mold films with preprinted circuitry. This is a versatile material to use, but advances in this application have been slowed by UV sensitivity of the material and its tendency to scratch easily, which makes it less weatherable than glass. If your production run is niche and well-funded, and you are looking to distinguish yourself from your competition, by all means, look at it. This is one material that is position specific.
