Virtual Racing Meets Modern Home Design: How BMW Motorsport, BMW Designworks and Sedus Elevated Functionality and Aesthetics
Sim racing is growing in popularity all over the world. As such, the number of users building comprehensively-equipped rigs at home is also growing. At BMW Motorsport, this raised the question of how to integrate these rigs in everyday life.

The idea was to develop a piece of furniture that would save space and could be aesthetically integrated into a modern living environment.
