A material-based design for an automotive dashboard with karuun® offers unique composition features and a groundbreaking design.

karuun® Dashboard for Green Mobility

The combination of customisation and innovation is crucial today to meet the demands of the evolving automotive industry. By using sustainable materials like karuun®, suppliers can contribute to actively shaping the future of mobility.

Celine Griguhn is pursuing this approach in her Bachelor’s thesis. She is designing a component for a car interior, in which the sustainable and innovative Nature Tech Material karuun® stripe natura raw serves as a real alternative to plastic in the decoration. karuun® is characterized by a flawless and uniform surface. It is also ideal for integrating innovative and informative light sources, as the Nature Tech Material has translucent properties. Additionally, the very thin karuun® veneer allows for hidden sensor control integration.

This sustainable design takes into account economic, social, cultural, and environmental aspects, contributing to the long-term protection of the rainforest and the indigenous people of Indonesia. It encourages conscious consideration of sustainable design and its impact on people and the environment.
