The ninth year of Days of Design in Prague Designblok´07 takes place from 2. - 7. 10. 2007. This year it is the fifth participation of Škoda Auto. The company is going to show the Škoda Fabia Scout, which was firstly presented at the Frankfurt International Motor Show 2007. The vehicle got many positive reactions from both consumers and industry experts on that occasion. The installation opens on Tuesday 2 October at 8 p. m. in Jan Palach square. The vehicle will be exhibited in a special sculpture. The Fabia Scout concept car follows the Scout design line that Škoda Auto already offers for its mass-produced Roomster Scout and Octavia Scout. The brand new vehicle is a standard estate with visual off-road features. Just like with the Roomster Scout and Octavia Scout, the design of the new car will include model-specific accessories and equipment items, i.e. details typical of SUV vehicles, such as large plastic body protection covers that make the Fabia Scout very distinctive. Obviously, the vehicle will also offer a number of already well-known smart solutions, such as pop-out hooks for shopping bags, a boot roller-cover with a control system identical with that in the Octavia Combi, etc. Trekking enthusiasts will surely appreciate a useful pop-out bench developed specifically for this new concept vehicle.This years´ theme of Designblok is called Tour de design, design traces. More than 177 actions of the newest Czech and World’s design – exhibitions, presentations, lectures and stylish cocktails – will be prepared for visitors at 60 spots in Prague, especially in the quarters of Karlin, Holesovice, Old Town and Vinohrady.
