How to design a Ford Escape for your home or office.
The latest in automotive interior design and technology, the Ford Escape’s innovative design brings a sense of elegance to the everyday.
With an integrated touch screen and touch-sensitive design, the Escape offers a sleek, yet functional, interior that can be configured with a variety of options.

“It’s an easy, intuitive way to create a custom interior.”
Egan’s team has been working on the design since last year, with the aim of providing a sleek and functional interior that could be customized and installed in a variety and sizes of spaces.
“The interior is a perfect example of what the Ford designers are doing,” he says.
“The touch-screen interface is a natural way to make a home- or office-specific interior, but the interior design has to be a good fit for a different purpose, like a car,” says Egan.
“And it can’t be too simple for the owner.”
“It’s the first time in my 20 years of working in interior design that I’ve worked with an agency that actually did it in a practical way.”
E-commerce company Amazon has already put together a range of interior design apps, and the latest addition is a new suite for people looking to design their own Escape.
The company is calling the suite a ‘home-inspired interior’, which it says is meant to be used by “everyone from the office worker to the home owner”.
Amazon’s website explains: “Customize your Escape with a series of customizable options including wall panel, wall trim, wall coverings, and a variety that you can select from.”
The suite is also a perfect tool for “the new generation of home buyers who want to create the perfect look for their home”, Amazon says.
The suite includes six layouts for a range that can range from the classic “flat wall” of a standard-sized room to the “fenced-off” spaces of a “portable lounge” or “port-a-potties” for the less tech-savvy.
The home-inspired layout is available in four sizes, ranging from 6-feet to 12-feet wide, and is available on the Amazon website.
The suite will also feature a range “to make the ultimate Escape look like it’s your own,” according to Amazon.
The company has created a number of interactive elements to help “create a personalised Escape for each owner”.
“This suite is designed for the new generation home buyer looking to create an ‘ideal’ look for his or her home,” Amazon says of the suite.
“You can design your own Escape, and share it with your friends or family and see how your design looks and feels.”
Egans team also created an interactive app to help the user decide which of six layouts will be the most appealing to them.
“This allows you to pick from a range, from the standard wall layout, to the small, wall-to-wall style, or the large, wall to wall style,” Amazon explains.
The team also used the suite’s touch-enabled screen to offer a more intuitive way of interacting with the suite, with users being able to adjust settings using a dedicated menu.
“Once you’ve chosen a layout, the app will automatically update and display a series in your choice, giving you a more personalized experience,” the company explains.
There are two ways to use the suite: by placing the phone next to the screen or using a menu.
The navigation system allows users to make changes by using a special menu on the right-hand side of the screen, and also lets users move around the suite and rearrange its elements.
“We want this suite to be as easy as possible for the user to use as well as being as intuitive and intuitive as possible,” says Amazon.
Customisation and the ‘home’ themeThe suite offers a range for a “home- or car-like” look, and users can change the look by placing a phone on top of the touchscreen.
The app can also be used to share the design with a friend or family member.
The design can be easily adjusted using a set of customizable elements.
Egan says the suite is “not just for people with a home office”, and adds that the “home” theme is ideal for people who want a different look to the standard home decor.
“They want a bit of flair, and they want something that feels like they’re home, not somewhere they’re working,” he explains.
“A home-style interior is something that’s really well suited to the modern, modern lifestyle.”
The Ford Escape is available now for $35,990 (AUD$44,000).
The suite also comes with a free “Home-Inspired” subscription
