On December 2, BMW i and Dwell Media will host The Sustaethics Event- an evening celebrating sustainable design and environmental preservation. Dwell, an established authority in design and innovation has teamed up with BMW i to share their synergistic visions and honor the incredible technological achievement and social impact of the new BMW i3 Concept and i8 Concept- the first purpose-built electric and hybrid-electric vehicles to be made primarily of carbon fiber- which will be on display at the event.
“We take our responsibility seriously when it comes to the mobility of the future and the future of our society,” says Benoit Jacob, head of BMW i Design. “we are in no doubt of the need to take a fresh view of things going forward.”
The event will be held on the top floor of the iconic Herzog & De Meuron car park 111 Lincoln Road. Dwell founder lara Deam will kick off the event along with Benoit Jacob, head of BMW i Design, who will unveil the cars. Miami-based architect Chad Oppenheim will transform the space into a lush, warm lounge using trees to create natural pathways with Treemendous, a local charity, the trees will then be donated to Miami’s Million Trees Campaign, which aims to plant one million trees by 2020.
