How Ford's design process works
Stefan Lamm is Exterior Design Director, Ford of Europe, and a key member of the design team responsible for shaping the look of Ford concept and production vehicles. "Great design is about making people fall in love with a product," Lamm said. "I get my inspiration from colleagues and I really enjoy discussing design and looking at sketches. Here at Salone del Mobile it is fascinating to see how materials are treated in modern furniture. You can digest so many design trends here in Milan." Lamm joined Ford in 2005, having previously held the position of chief designer at Opel AG, Germany. Lamm first developed a love for sketching and a love of cars when he was a boy growing up in Dortmund, Germany. "My father never could afford to buy a new car, so I was always watching what cars our neighbours and friends had and sketching them," Lamm said. "I was always sketching and by the time I was 15 or 16, I started dreaming about being a car designer." Find out more at http://www.ford-vignale.com

Building a car from clay
Mike Gasteier is group leader for the clay modelling department at Ford's Design Studio in Cologne, Germany, and an experienced clay modeller. Originally from Cologne, Gasteier has worked at Ford since 1994. Starting as a hard modeller -- working with wood and synthetic materials to produce prototype designs -- he moved to clay modelling in 1999. "I wanted to move in to clay modelling because it offered the chance to get closer to the actual design of the vehicle," Gasteier said. "I had training from Ford before starting to work with clay, but you learn so much year after year. The most important thing is simply to have fun with it." For Gasteier, retaining perspective is another important element when working with clay to create exterior designs. The ability to view a surface as part of the complete design can be crucial. "All of the surfaces need to come together to form a relationship with each other," Gasteier said. "Sometimes you need to take a step back backwards and view the project as a whole. Maybe even clear your mind by going for a walk for 10 minutes, and then return with a fresh perspective." Gasteier has worked on many projects during two decades with Ford, and enjoys the opportunity to be involved in creating new vehicles from a very early stage. Among his favourite projects was the development of the Ford B-MAX that offered a new challenge in presenting the sliding rear door. Gasteier also particularly enjoys working with vehicle interiors.
