Kai Sieber: Director Design Brands & Operations.
Inspired by raindrops.
Where does your enthusiasm for design come from? Even from a young age, I simply loved drawing and making things. Not just cars, but also houses, animals, plants – anything. Then, as a teenager, I also developed a passion for tools and technology. So it was only logical for me to go on to study technology and, later, design. What do you like to do in your leisure time? Away from work, I enjoy a wide range of outdoor activities with my family. And I am still a very keen painter. Where do you get your inspiration from? From everything! Exhibitions, movies, nature or simply the formation of raindrops on a window pane… Who or what would you have liked to be? A car designer – I’m happy it worked out for me!
