Flattened Fiats: Sculptures by Ron Arad

Israeli industrial designer, artist, and architect Ron Arad crushed retro Fiat cars to produce these impressive sculptures.

“The model Arad uses, the Fiat 500c Giardiniera, was not only his family’s first car, but also the vehicle that his father almost died in, from a crash when Arad was a child. The cars are stunning and almost create the illusion that they are drawn or painted. They strike a heavier impact by nature of the material, though. The sheer mass has a profound effect on the viewer, even in photographs.”
