James Ball is a design and tech obsessive working under the pseudonym Docubyte. All of Docubyte's work is characterised by bold colours and subtle restorative manipulation to bring vintage technology alive. Never have these elements been so apparent as in his new series: Wedged Wonders.
During the ‘60s, several Italian car body design houses became synonymous with avant-garde vehicle styling, namely Bertone, Pininfarina and Italdesign. These design houses would go head-to-head, each time outdoing each other, resulting in a trend for straight lines. The curves of the ‘60s were gone and the future looked boxy.
Each of the cars featured in Wedged Wonders is a concept car. These prototypes are the definition of automotive artistry, a sign of the direction and reputation of their creators. Concept cars were a chance for designers to experiment with new ways of thinking and manufacturing, they were never mass produced and are defined by their rarity.
