Engineers Vs Designers, Two Different Worlds still So Close

Since a long time I felt to write about the dualism between Engineers and Designers, two key roles for any industry. I wanted to tell, according to my experience and other designers’stories, the difficulties and incomprehensions that many times designers have when work or attend meetings with engineers.

I am not against engineers, I am not. I believe thay have simply a different academic background, both have different approach to problem solving. For the same problem both give different solutions, their objective is to solve in an intelligent and constructive way the same problem. However, often they get in contrast with different ways of doing the same thing, different methodology caused by their different nature of being and studies they had.

Rationality Vs Creativity?

In my latest DESIGN TALK on Youtube I gave my version and here the video for you.

The Reds EV Concept by Chris Bangle Associates Design Studio

Watching this video we can all understand why and how a project is made, it is not a question of simple style. It is a deeper look into a problem solving The congested cities in¬†China & the enemy N¬į1 the¬†traffic!

This Concept called Reds EV is one of the answers, not the only one, however it is a realistic good answer.

The concept thinking is to start from the inside. The¬†passengers’ life is the priority, an easier life onboard even if stuck into a traffic jam. It is the interior architecture that will define the exterior shape, the openings (side doors and back door) are important to help for better ergonomics, at so on.

The Design thinking process is the key of this project not its style and I guess it was not meant to be the most good looking car in the world, but the vehicle with real answers to a real problem.

I invite all of you to watch the video.

Lada XCODE concept sketches by Raphael Linari

The new Lada X-CODE concept came out and some of the original sketches have been released to the Press.

I wanted to show this one in particular because of its excellent quality, the author of these sketches is car designer, and Lada Design studio Chief in Moscow, Raphael Linari.

Raphael is an ex student of mine during my teaching in Torino before going to France, and I kept a beautiful souvenir of Raphael’s school time because of his talent and most of all his deep dedication in accomplishing his mission to become a car designer.

He made quickly great progress and got his first internship at Ford in Germany,once he graduated it was easy for him to find a job. After many years we became colleagues in Renault, small world!

Today Raphael is the Lada Studio Design Chief in Moscow and works with  design director Steve Mattin.
