We all know that Ford’s day-job is designing cars – and really, really awesome ones, at that. But what if we told you that Ford has taken on some other design work, and it involves things like a guitar, a foosball table, and a racing sailboat?
Ford has taken on a new challenge at the world’s leading furniture and design expo in Milan, Italy, designing a number of non-automotive creations based on the one-and-only Ford GT supercar. Besides what was listed above, the creations include a sandwich, a ping pong table, lounge furniture, a suspended light, a Wi-Fi speaker, a magnetic hover board, a suitcase and more.
Before you get too excited, you should know that these creations were designed only for the Milan Furniture show, and Ford plans to stick with what it knows best: cars. “We’re taking the concepts and philosophy behind the Ford GT’s interior design and applying it to other products,” Ford design chief Moray Callum said of the unique goods.
These projects allow Ford designers to showcase their creative talents while exploring design opportunities for future Ford vehicles.
“We have an incredible amount of talent in our global design studios,” said Ford’s chief designer, Moray Callum, in a statement. “Salone del Mobile is the perfect forum to share some of that creativity, while also offering our designers an opportunity to get exposure to new ideas that will inspire future Ford design.”
