EXO is the first electric car with bodywork entirely geodetic, inspired by the structures of Buckminster Fuller, but also to chair one of Grcic, or organic forms of Lovegrove and Zaha Hadid
The creators of EXO are two Italian designers, Mark Beccaloni e Mauro Fragiotta, Graduates from the University "Sapienza" of Rome in "Industrial Design", colleagues and friends, with a strong passion for the formal research, as well as fans of three-dimensional modeling.
"The shape of the EXO comes from an experiment modeling NURBS or organic modeling, the home of mathematical geodesic, thinking that the object in the beginning was a regular icosahedron. In the automotive industry this modeling would have been considered a wrong procedure, usually are used modelers surface, but these forms are not obtainable to "continuity" using software commonly used for automotive, it has a limit of the programs consonant not be able to handle "star points ", which the modelers are almost organic in a click. At the end of the project we conducted various three-dimensional simulations of driving and successfully exported an .stl file for processing. EXO is an example of how there is never an exact procedure to get something, you fall into the error to generate innovation. "
