BMW GINA Light Visionary Model

The BMW Group Design has developed an innovative concept, the GINA, Geometry and Functions in N Adaptations. It allows the creation of products with a design and functional range that express individuality and meet the wide variety of requirements of those who are using them. Nowadays, the Bavarian group is already responding to the highly diversified range of customer requirements and heightened expectations by providing services such as a substantially more varied product range, ever increasing possibilities for personalization and requirement-oriented production among others. By introducing the GINA philosophy, the carmaker presents ways of meeting these challenges in the future. It offers designers as well as development and production specialists an opportunity to challenge existing principles and conventional processes. Actually, the philosophy refers to deliberately integrate the potential of new materials and pioneering, innovative manufacturing methods and material concepts. With the development of the GINA Light Visionary Model, the BMW Group presents examples of visionary solutions. Both the exterior and the interior are equipped with a variety of components that differ significantly from conventional solutions, not only by the way they look, but also in terms of their basic properties. A wide range of innovations that have been acclaimed for their virtually revolutionary character is actually based on the GINA philosophy. Visionary ideas have been turned into new concepts. The effort of the specialists has allowed the creation of a form language that has not only significantly enhanced aesthetic standards and significance of design as an expression of product substance, but also the manufacturing processes themselves. It is one of the GINA principles to challenge existing solutions in order to broaden the context, thus extending the scope of possibilities for customers. The GINA design philosophy has been applied to Rapid Manufacturing to create an unparalleled method of manufacturing single components fast, cost-efficiently and with a focus on individual requirements.
