Interior upholstery and seating are prominent, but often overlooked aspects of any vehicle’s aesthetic presentation. But what happens when you make them the centerpiece of design? In typical Porsche fashion, the company has decided to answer one of the industry’s most pressing questions in a spectacular way, thanks to the 3D-Printed Bodyform Bucket Seat.

The 3D-Printed Bodyform Bucket Seat is yet another innovative system from the German automotive manufacturer’s gifted design team, offering prospective customers a way to customize their interior seating in a way that they never could before. In an effort to promote the widespread articulation of driver preferences and firmness levels, the outfit has contracted a bespoke 3D lattice structure and “Racetex” cover, promoting breathability, comfort, and conformity to various styles of driving. Below the seat’s sleek exterior skin, an expanded polypropylene layer has been paired with a cushion formulated from polyurethane-based materials to create a systematic answer to one of the time-tested questions of cockpit innovation. Only 40 prototype seats will be available to track drivers initially, but Porsche plans to release the product to the public as early 2021. Head to the company’s website to learn more.
