Bentley has collaborated with
renowned creator, Philippe Starck, to create a unique and intelligent
recharging unit concept for Bentayga Hybrid customers – the Bentley by Starck
Power Dock. The statement piece with its clean and refined design is conceived
with the highest attention to detail from both Bentley and Starck, using
sustainable and technological materials. The elegant surround is formed from
pressed eco-linen with bio-sourced thermosetting resin, while the domed
frontage is fashioned using a hot-pressure aluminium casting.
Starck’s Power Dock concept –
with its tactile surfaces and inviting aesthetic – will encourage Bentayga
Hybrid customers to plug-in whenever they are at home, thus ensuring each
journey begins with the maximum electric-only range.
It is designed to keep
charging cables neat and safe at home. Furthermore, it brings a sophisticated
and timeless touch to the act of hybrid recharging, acting as a functional
piece of art that will enhance any home.
Phillippe Starck, also a
Bentley customer of many years, describes the ownership experience as “a love
story”. “You don’t like a Bentley, you love it. The relationship with a Bentley
is not about bio-design or horsepower, it’s a mental and sentimental
relationship,” he explained.
Throughout his career Starck
has demonstrated a unique and rebellious approach to product design, and an
unrivalled attention to detail that has made him one of the most revered
creators of his generation.
Starck is one of the most
revered creators of his generation and is responsible for many iconic designs.
From everyday products such as furniture and lemon squeezers, to revolutionary
mega-yachts, hotels and restaurants that aspire to be wondrous, stimulating and
intensely vibrant places – Starck never ceases to push the boundaries and
criteria of contemporary design.
He has also consistently
demonstrated an environmental ethos, always conscious of the materials he uses
and their impact on the world around him. All of this made him the perfect
partner for Bentley and the Bentayga Hybrid.
For example, he has designed
ecologically progressive wooden houses powered by wind and solar power;
revolutionary wind turbines designed for domestic use; and electric cars, bikes
“As always with my designs I
wanted the maximum of intelligence with the minimum of materiality. I wanted it
to be a modern art piece: durable, real and avant-garde high tech. It was also
important for me that the unit was as sustainable as possible,” explained
This Bentayga Hybrid model
represents Bentley’s first step towards full electrification, combining the
serenity of silent motoring with exquisite comfort and effortless performance.
