Ibumped into my old friend Tim Pyne, one of the few designers to emerge with big credits from the Millennium Dome saga. His Shoreditch-based WORK consultancy is now busy on the London Motor Show, which until recently looked as though it might be famous for the number of manufacturers declining to attend on the grounds of stand costs. Pyne has reversed this by designing zones where each car exhibited will get the same space: with no stand cost to the manufacturer. Manufacturers will not be able to show their cars together, but from a visitor's point of view that may be a bonus. For example, all the small cars will be grouped, as will family saloons etc, making comparison easy. If this sounds a bit prosaic, don't worry. Pyne will also be featuring an installation of 100 crushed cars, a second-hand car lot, and a space reserved for 'Honest John' a used car dealer.
