A work of art on a world tour: Byton to present concept car at Milan Design Week
Byton, developer and manufacturer of smart premium electric vehicles, is showcasing its production-ready concept vehicle to a European audience for the first time. From the 17th April, visitors at Milan Design Week will be able to experience the Byton Concept in a creatively designed environment – in which the elegant exterior and the high-tech interior will be presented in a unique way.
“Byton is all about changing mobility and especially about enhancing the time we spend in a car. At the Salone del Mobile and the accompanying Design Week, it’s all about spaces where people feel comfortable as well as a communicative atmosphere and a positive lifestyle. That fits in perfectly with our aspirations and values and we look forward to seeing our audience in Milan,” says Carsten Breitfeld, CEO and co-founder of Byton.

Byton will present its design experience environment in the exclusive Brera Design District in the “Casa d ́Aste Blindarte”, Via Palermo 11.
