Top model Julia Stegner, for instance, played on the computer with various colours for the exterior paint of the CLS 350 CGI Grand Edition, which she had already got to know in ‘designo magno platin’ matt finish during her photo shoot for the key visual of Mercedes-Benz Fashion Week Berlin.
designo – limitless design flexibility
As synonym, designo stands worldwide for the exclusive design of the exterior and interior of a Mercedes-Benz. For virtually every model range, Mercedes-Benz designers have developed a specific designo programme that is in line with the characteristics of the respective vehicle class. In addition to a large number of exclusive exterior paints, the programme offers a virtually limitless selection of options for composing the vehicle’s interior – so that customers can configurate their vehicles according to their personal taste. There is an equally wide selection of handmade leathers in different colours and trims made of exquisitely crafted woods and natural stones such as granite.
Exhibited samples offer visitors of Mercedes-Benz Fashion Week Berlin an impression of the exceptional quality of the various available leathers and provide an introduction to the wide range of colours. The spectrum of traditionally hand-crafted materials ranges from nappa leather to aniline leather to extremely soft natural leather – available with either a matt or lustrous finish. There is also a special car seat on display that demonstrates the array of customising possibilities. Tennis legend Boris Becker was impressed by the wealth of choices, and tried out the seating comfort of the white aniline leather upholstery combined with nubuk leather that was especially designed for the Mercedes-Benz Fashion Week Berlin.
