Jaguar XE word cloud sculpture put on show at London Design Museum
Jaguar XE word sculpture made of aluminium consists of 95 words of seven languages including English, Italian, German, French, Spanish, Russian and Mandarin. The words express aesthetics and characteristics of the new Jaguar sedan that is touted to conquer the segment. Cloud representation of XE sports sedan was designed by a collaboration of creative experts across the fields of Computer Aided Design (CAD), graphic artwork, stage design and metal work.
XE word cloud was produced by combination of man and machine work. Words were created and aligned by computer designing and modelling technique. Then the team that worked on elements of London Olympic Games Opening Ceremony exercised their metal craftsmanship to bring the Jaguar XE sculpture to life.
Ian Callum, Jaguar Director of Design, expressed the enormous amount of fun in bringing a word cloud of Jaguar XE sedan and everything it means to life. He added that it was hugely satisfying to be approved by London Design museum and to have their work be a part of London Design Festival.
Much awaited and celebrated Jaguar XE sports saloon will be unveiled today, 8 September 2014.

Today Jaguar and London Design Museum revealed a unique aluminium word cloud sculpture in the shape of the new Jaguar XE sports saloon. Installed in the Design Museum’s ‘Tank’, the design piece marks the start of the global launch of the new Jaguar XE due to be unveiled in London early next week.
Jaguar design collaborated with a range of creative experts across the fields of computer aided design, graphic artwork, stage design and metal work to design a word cloud representation of the new XE consisting of 95 words using seven languages including French, German, Spanish, Italian, English, Russian and Mandarin.
Design Museum Head of Communications Josephine Chanter said: “Large scale installations like this striking sculpture are always hugely popular with our visitors, and the Jaguar XE form is already attracting lots of attention. We’re sure that it will be a hit with the public, and it makes an eye-catching addition to our programme for the London Design Festival.”
The production methods are a combination of man and machine. Computer modelling was used to create the words that are molded to the dynamic form of the Jaguar XE then finished using metal craftsmanship by the team behind elements of the London Olympic Games Opening Ceremony.
Ian Callum, Jaguar Director of Design, said: “It has been an enormous amount of fun bringing a word cloud of XE and everything it means to life. It’s hugely satisfying to be recognised by London Design museum and to have our work become part of London Design Festival.”
