The stretched, extravagant streamlined corpus of the sculpture is pressed flat against the ground, the flared wheel arches giving a muscular impression in the body. While the surface at the front end sensually models the corpus of the vehicle, it begins to slowly segment and separate towards the rear as if the resulting surface segments were captured by an imaginary air stream and carried away. The thereby generated optical effect embodies dynamism and speed in a fascinating manner. The formal clarity of the sculpture with its purist main body reflects the seamless look of all EQ vehicles. The “Aesthetics Progressive Luxury” sculpture is the latest in the Mercedes-Benz series of sculptures. The series comprises the sculptures “Aesthetics No. 1” (2010), “Aesthetics No. 2”, “Aesthetics 125” (both 2011), “Aesthetics S” (2012) and “Aesthetics A” (2017).
