British photographer benedict redgrove has taken a rare look inside the design studio of italian automobile firm bertone. in a distinct artistic approach that highlights geometry, architecture and engineering, redgrove has captured some of the company’s most radical concept cars from the 1960s and 70s — some never seen before — including designs for alfa romeo, lamborghini and lancia. the series of images which was originally commissioned by wallpaper* magazine, exudes a specialty in styling, coachbuilding and manufacturing, with bertone’s vision categorized by abstract angular frameworks, a use of unique materials for standard auto parts and super-sleek interiors built for luxury and functionality.
