Meet BMW’s new design chief
In this brief but interesting video, 42-year-old Canadian industrial designer Karim Antoine Habib pays homage to design history & talks about what inspires him.
- I love that he drives a vintage 2002, though in his shoes I’d try for a 3.0 CS.
- For a guy who cares so much about detail (and who hangs out in a room full of people sporting poncey scarves), it’s interesting that he uses such a humble (even crappy) pen. It’s nice to be reminded that tools are just tools.
