Thrive

Thrive is an entirely self-sustainable vehicle designed to survive in “non infrastructure zones,” using piezoelectric fibre technology as well as inspiration from the living, breathing gill elements of sea creatures.

This vehicle thrives on exposure to the elements by generating electrical energy from them so it can survive without recharging or refuelling. The materials that power it shape the aesthetic form and language of the vehicle, producing a natural aesthetic that reflects the territories the car is designed to explore.
