While we wouldn’t want to say that the automotive world is an insiders-only club, it does seem to be a space that’s resistant to change. That doesn’t mean there aren’t people pushing the boundaries of traditional design, as evidenced by a new avant-garde exhibit at the Petersen Automotive Museum.

Called ‘Disruptors,’ this exhibition focuses on the world of two designers, Joey Ruiter and Rem D Koolhaas (of United Nude), and their outside perspective on what vehicular transport could be if Bauhaus design principles were applied. The vehicles on display include Ruiter’s boxy ‘Commuter Car,’ the blacked-out ‘Snoped V2,’ the aggressive ‘Reboot Buggy,’ the mirrored ‘Moto Undone,’ and more. Similarly, Koolhaas has contributed his ‘Lo-Res Car Sculpture’ — a conceptual take on the legendary Lamborghini Countach. Opening at the end of this month, ‘Disruptors’ will run through March of 2020 if you want to see this minimalist automotive collection for yourself.
