Famous automotive design conference and their creations

Do you know what unites Moscow’s Konkovo district and hypercar Bugatti Chiron?

These names are perfectly familiar to many. And each is associated with certain achievements. Chris Bangle for the majority will forever be the American who “ruined” the legendary Bavarian sedans. Maestro Giugiaro will be remembered as the founder of the bodywork Studio Italdesign. Bruno Sacco entered the history of the author of a scattering of classic Mercedes. However, in the biography of each of these people there are other interesting facts. Not too known in wider circles, but no less curious. Each of the characters this article is now live and continues to work. Some in a rather unusual role.

Chris Bangle hit the bottle

Christopher Edward Bangle born October 14 1956 in Ravenna, Ohio, and grew up in Wisconsin. After graduating from the California College of design (ArtCenter College of Design), Chris started to work for Opel where he was involved in designing the interior of the Opel Junior concept -. And then moved to Fiat released in 1993 and has not lost relevance to this day, the Fiat Coupe was his first independent development.

Draw for the BMW Bangle began in 1992 and in varying degrees put hands nearly all models launched in the period. And yet the real glory, may partly with a minus sign, Chris brought “the seven” index E65, which debuted in the fall of 2001. The bold design of the machine is operated on critics like a red rag to a bull. Time magazine even included the sedan in the list of the fifty worst cars in history. However, shortly E65 became the best selling seventh series and ahead of all its predecessors.

The development of the appearance for the first time the Fiat Coupe has become the first truly major work. before working exclusively on the interiors of concept cars Opel.

“Seven” BMW E65 with the index got on the conveyor in 2001 and lasted until 2008. Despite many negative reviews from the press, in terms of sales, it left behind all its predecessors: for seven and a half years produced 330 thousand cars.”Seven” BMW E65 with the index got on the conveyor in 2001 and lasted until 2008.

In early February, 2009, Bangle announced that he was leaving BMW and tying with automotive design. After that, the fate of the American heard a little. However, Chris didn’t waste time. Having dealt with cars, he opened his own design Studio of Chris Bangle Associates with a residence permit in Turin. Worked for the company Samsung was engaged in design of gadgets and appliances, and developed the bottle design and packaging for Hennessy. In General, to touch the works of the bangle, it is not necessary to buy BMW.

Steve Mattin took over the handrails

Steve is his full name. He was born 29 Oct 1964 in the County of Bedfordshire. In 1987 he graduated from the University of Coventry with a degree in industrial design and in the same year got a job at Mercedes-Benz in Sindelfingen. There, the British methodically grew over them. In 1997, for the draft class‑Steve was awarded the title of designer of the year. Three years later was promoted to senior design Manager. The number of cars involved Mattin – almost all Mercedes, born in the first half of zero. Limousine Maybach 57 and 62 — are also his handiwork.

It would seem, what else can dream of a young but already accomplished automotive designer? But in 2004 Mattin is taking a new challenge and moves in the Volvo, inscribing his name in the history of this brand and adding to portfolio models S40, V50 and XC60. A little later, Steve makes another sharp turn — he becomes the chief designer of the Russian brand Lada.

Despite all their achievements, Mattin remains simple and nice guy. In interviews he has repeatedly said that Togliatti moves on the service Prior and during business trips to Moscow prefers the subway car. So, if you ever meet in the car a middle-aged man, very similar to Creator Maybach, can get his autograph. With high probability this person will actually be Steve.

Giorgetto Giugiaro concocted story

Even if you’re not interested in cars and read these lines by some mistake, the name of Giorgetto Giugiaro’s probably familiar to you. He was born in 1938 in a small Italian commune, Garessio with a population of three and a half thousand people. Grandfather and father, Giorgetto were artists, so the future founder of Studio Italdesign is hardly a rebel.

The artistic talent of Giugiaro was remarkable. He started drawing caricatures of cars and was seen as a technical Director in Fiat — seventeen-year-old boy took a job in a large and respected firm. Then the Italian was marked by cooperation with the design center and Bertone design Studio Ghia. And after he started his own company.

Today the 78‑year-old Maestro a few dozen of iconic cars, including the Ferrari 250 GT, Maserati Quattroporte, Lotus Esprit and DeLorean DMC‑12. Has to his credit, and budget cars, including Renault 19, Fiat Uno and Daewoo Matiz. If you dig deeper, you find that the Giugiaro versatility knows no bounds. In the long list of his works is the creation of buildings of the Nikon. And the “icing on the cake” — the design of the pasta for the legendary Neapolitan company Voiello. Giorgetta, drew twelve sketches, but went into production, the paste is of two types — Marille and Gusto. The second release so far. Hurry to try it!

Bruno Sacco “wet” reputation

The Italian did not create his own Studio and can not boast a large variety of iconic works like Giorgetto Giugiaro. And yet Sacco, who was born 12 November 1933 in the small town of Ferrara, a hundred kilometers from Venice, definitely deserves a spot on the design Olympus. Even today, “grandpa Bruno” pretty fucking cool.

By his own admission, to class automotive design was inspired Studebaker Commander Regal, accidentally seen in 1951 on the way to the tennis courts. As a result, before graduating from the Polytechnic University of Turin, Bruno started to work in the companies Ghia and Pininfarina. In 1958, hard work and perseverance brought the Italian in Daimler-Benz, where he built a distinguished career in car design.

Monumental sedan Mercedes-Benz (body W100), Roadster Mercedes-Benz 230 SL with the W113 index, sportprototip Mercedes-Benz C 111 — to all these cars in one way or another put the hands of Bruno Sacco. And in 1975 he was appointed Director of the center for style and directly oversaw the creation of the legendary sedan, W123, W201, W124… One of his latest automotive work was the first “big-eyed” E‑class (W210).

Even after a career in the Mercedes, Bruno continued to open new horizons. In cooperation with the German company Hansa, he has created a line of unusual mixers, giving a stream of the original form. Model Canyon, Murano, and Stela was awarded numerous awards at exhibitions of world level. Hard to call another person, capable of the eighties to bring into the world something fresh and really new.

But the result was satisfied and the company and the customers. With the release of crossover the sales of Jaguars have doubled.

Talent, coupled with perseverance and hard work, can move mountains. The history of the Scot Ian Callum brilliantly illustrates this postulate. Ian was born on 30 July 1955 in the small town of Dumfries (32 thousand inhabitants) and in the age of 13, sent his sketches to Jaguar in the hope to be noticed and to get at least some work. Then, of course, nothing came of it. But Yang did not retreat from his dreams.

Professional education Callum received in several institutions — the school of transportation design in Coventry, Aberdeen art College, Manchestercan Polytechnic University. This background helped to get a job at Ford, where Callum spent eleven eventful years — from 1979 to 1990. Spectacular coupe Ford Puma is a creation of Ian Callum. His pencil belongs to the legendary Ford Escort RS Cosworth.

After working on the “blue oval” Ian found a job in an engineering company TWR, the owner of which was Tom Wakinshaw. The same man who in 1996 purchased the Arrows team for participation in the championship of Formula 1 and hired the current world champion Damon hill. And although Ian was not able to work on creating a formula car, during the work on Wakinshaw he implemented many interesting projects. That there is only one coupe Aston Martin DB7. Or racing prototype Nissan R390.

In the last year of the last Millennium dream Callum was realized in full: the 44‑year-old Yang moved to Jaguar. And there on the post of chief designer surprised everyone. From early childhood, Callum was crazy about the classic “four-eyed” sedan XJ, but it made a revolution, presenting in 2009 a new large sedan the revolutionary design. At first, many thought this decision was a terrible mistake, but today’s modern Jaguars seems the right thing.

Alexander Selipanov not promised to return

Alexander Selivanov was born in Tbilisi in 1983. Some time later, together with his family he moved to Moscow, graduated from the secondary school in the area Konkovo. Thanks to parent support immediately after graduation Selipanov went to study in California, where he became a student at the College of design (ArtCenter College of Design). After graduation, Alexander received several offers from employers from which to choose a design Studio of Volkswagen in Potsdam.

German concern Selipanov worked eleven years. Not exchanged for trifles, and worked mainly on hypercare: was involved in the development of the Lamborghini Huracan and led the project Bugatti Chiron (one of the fastest cars in the world). Don’t know how hard it was for him to climb so high, but from the outside it looks like a Russian takes the top with consummate ease. And yet — is not afraid to accept new challenges. Recent events — a good example.

First came the crossover Kodiaq. Then Joseph stirred up the people, presented the updated Octavia. And immediately after last year’s Christmas holidays said he is leaving the Czech company and switches to BMW. This radical move has surprised many, as the Boar began to work in the Volkswagen group in the last century and it seemed that cooperation suits both parties.

Despite the fact that the vast majority of surname Boar is associated exclusively with the brand Skoda, among the works of Slovak, there are cars other brands of the Volkswagen group. In the nineties a very young Joseph worked on the appearance of a couple of “kids” Seat Arosa and Volkswagen Lupo. And later, at the age of thirty, drew hypercar Bugatti Veyron.
