IF DESIGN AWARD 2014

FORD introduced the Ford Vignale Collection, a portfolio of designs inspired by the Ford Vignale model range.

The collection was on display at the Ford Vignale Lounge at Salone del Mobile in the Fiero Milano exhibition hall and includes the Vignale Weekender, a luxury overnight bag that was recently awarded an iF Design award. The bag incorporates styling cues from the Ford S-MAX Vignale Concept and Mondeo Vignale Concept vehicles, including the distinctive grille, the quilted pattern of the handcrafted seats, and the contoured shape of the bonnet. Ford became the first auto manufacturer to participate in Salone del Mobile with a collection that included a watch, chair and lamp infused with the company’s design DNA and influenced by furniture and fashion trends. The Vignale collection also includes a shoulder handbag; a coffee machine bag; and a clutch bag and purse, made of finest leather, and inspired by the quilted pattern of the hand-crafted seats of the Vignale concept vehicles.
