“The characteristic lines of the S-Class have always represented the expression of automotive culture, as we understand it. The new S-Class will continue this tradition and, with its striking lines, will put a face to our design philosophy over the coming years”, explains Gorden Wagener, Head of Design at Mercedes-Benz Cars.

In the case of the “Aesthetics S” sculpture, the exterior of the next S-Class is interpreted in an artistic manner. According to Wagener: “The sculpture highlights the artistic aspects of design. With the design and proportions of “Aesthetics S”, we are communicating a modern sense of status, sensual shapes and stylish sportiness.”

The debut of the relief-like sculpture at the Paris Motor Show will be combined with an exciting projection display. The scene will be set for the sculpture with the aid of light in a series of three acts, using a modern means of design and implementation. The shape will be revealed through projected light reflections, creating a three-dimensional world in which the creative imagination of the designers can be visualized to impressive effect.

With the “Aesthetics S” work of art, Mercedes-Benz is continuing its “Aesthetics” series of sculptures which to date comprises the pieces “Aesthetics No. 1” (2010), “Aesthetics No. 2” and “Aesthetics 125” (both 2011).
