Swedish designer Marcos Costa has created a concept car in his Umea Institute of Design thesis project called ‘Anything moves a bucket of Lilies.’

Marcos Costa rethinks production assumptions and proposes a new, modularized approach to automotive manufacturing, pointing out that in addition to style, materials sourcing, parts transportation, and vehicle distribution all play a role in automotive design.
