The new Mercedes EQS not only features impressive technical details, it also has an innovative interior design. The premium equipment includes a 1.41-metre Hyperscreen that sweeps across the cockpit with curved lines. Two air vents emerge to the left and right-hand side of the display as a contrast to the smooth and seamless display surface and to “connect the digital and physical world”, in the words of Mercedes-Benz. The vents were developed and manufactured in Horb by fischer Automotive, a division of the fischer Group of Companies. The futuristic design featuring a turbine look is the hallmark of the vents, which stand out significantly from the puristic Hyperscreen, making them a focal point.
The upper edge of the Hyperscreen features additional air vents. Unlike the side vents, these cross-dashboard air vents are subtly integrated into the overall design. Stand-out features include the floating, ‘Silver Shadow’-coloured handles (operating elements) as well as the rose gold three-component trim strip. As an added highlight, the vents can be illuminated in various colours. The air vents add to and reinforce the effect of the MBUX Hyperscreen in the spirit of Mercedes Chief Design Officer Gordon Wagener, according to whom design is associated with the desire for two things: “Beauty and the extraordinary”. This “x-factor”, according to Wagener, has to be “surprising and enchanting”.
