Niklas P is a design student from the Umea Institute of Design, which sits way too far north of Stockholm to be warm at almost any time of year. Despite this, Niklas and his fellow design students get the gloves off for long enough each day to do some brainstorming and some sketching.
If the profile is familiar, that’s because I’ve featured some of Niklas’ work on this site before. Most notably the Urmus, a computer mouse based on UrSaab.
Overnight, Niklas emailed me his latest sketches:
This week at Umeå Institute of Design we’ve had a sketch course. I, of course, made a Saab – the 9-4X. Its my vision of the upcoming SUV, its slightly bigger than the VW Tiguan but smaller than a BMW X3
I enjoyed them so much I thought I’d share them here, and seeing Niklas and I were in touch, I asked him if he’d mind taking on an assignment for the website. More on that later.
In the meantime, enjoy these. And if you haven’t seen UrMus yet, click through at the previous link, too. I really wish Saab Expressions would licence that one.
Click to enlarge, and I’m sure Niklas would appreciate your thoughts in comments.
