Quasar Khanh’s Cube Car on Life.com

March 29, 2010

In our first Q&A with Othello Khanh in March 2009, the producer and director told AsiaLIFE about his life growing up in the Khanh household. His father is designer and inventor Quasar Khanh, who is known for creating a line of high-end inflatable furniture and fabricating hovercrafts. Recently, another of Quasar’s unlikely inventions was included in a list of Eye-Popping Car Designs on Time magazine’s website. Check out this shot of a prototype for the cube-shaped Le Quasar from 1967 that Time editors included on the list of 43 creative cars.

For in-person examples of Quasar Khanh’s designs, head over to Gaya design shop on Le Lai in District 1, where his aluminum cast furniture, tables and lamps are featured among the fashion and interiors selections.

  1. Thanks for the post

  2. Always glad to find a few words about the Quasar Khanh’s Cube car.
    Just a comment : Yes the car in picture on the Life’s article is the French prototype of La Quasar designed by Quasar Khanh. But not the one illustrated above which it’s a “standard” one from the small batch built in England by Unipower Ltd in 1967-1968.
