How does your typical working day look like?
There is never a typical day, each day is different, and that is the exciting aspect of my work. I travel a lot, often to one of the Advanced Design Studios. This constantly exposes me to new impressions and experiences which make their way into my idea of good design. When I am actually in the office, it is like a visit by a hospital consultant. I tour the studios, make a diagnosis and see how the design work is progressing. In the evenings I occasionally like to put the draft designs together and discuss them with my team. This always leads to good results and decisions.
Where does your enthusiasm for design come from?
I have always been design-minded, wanting to draw cars. Even as a schoolboy I used to draw car designs on the desks.
