As a child, you may remember collecting flowers and sticking them between two pages of a thick book. A few days later they would be fragile and paper-thin, but would last an eternity. Israeli designer Ron Arad takes the same concept of “pressed flowers” and applies them to cars - Fiat 500s, to be precise.

Ron Arad took six real Fiat 500s and flattened them into 12 cm thick sheets of metal in an industrial press at a shipyard in Groningen, the Netherlands. According to Arad, he is not destroying the cars, but “immortalising them”. The pressed cars are in display at his new exhibition titled "Pressed Flowers," at the Design Museum Holon in Tel Aviv, Israel.
