Holiday Reading (Part 4): Henrick Fisker

Henrik Fisker on Aston Martin, Ford & General Automotive Design

A interesting (but perhaps overly long) interview with Henrik Fisker, the designer of the stunning Aston Martin DB9 and V8 Vantage. Fisker’s comments on where his design inspiration comes from would be familiar to most architects:

But where do I get the idea for the design? Whenever I’m awake, I think about cars. It’s not really something that’s from 9 to 4, and it’s not even exclusive to the 5 days a week; it’s 7 days a week.

Any decent design professional understands what he is saying. Design is not just a job, it is all-encompassing.
