Product and furniture design student Karsan Haval combined forces with interior design undergraduates Luiza Darie Vlasceanu, Femi Adedoyin, Ruby Asare-Brown and Yelitzelena Leonard to form part of a dedicated team who spent 800 hours crafting a full-sized replica of the Nissan Qashqai Black Edition for the Japanese firm – which manufactures 58 real cars in just one hour.
The unique project was commissioned by Nissan to demonstrate the refined design of its new European crossover model. Students from the Faculty of Art, Design & Technology were called on to take part and spent two weeks drawing onto a stencilled car with a 3D pen, which was also used to then weld the elements of the car together.
