Hommage Syd Mead
Syd Mead is an industrial designer who develops futuristic objects with a true gift of futuristic vision. He has, during his long carrier, elaborated posters, built exhibition areas, invented clocks and amusement parks’ décors for Ford Motor Company, U.S. Steel and Philips Electronics. He has also worked for very innovative movies, where he was known as the “visual futurist”. Objects including V’ger (Star Trek), racing-cars made out of phosphorescent light (Tron), the Leonov space shuttle (2010), police cars, cityscapes and interior design (Blade Runner), the Sulaco military space shuttle (Aliens) and the game console (Strange Days) are out of Syd Mead’s overflowing imagination.
