“The world would be a sad place for me, without great design” - Gerry McGovern
Modern automotive design is, by necessity, high-tech and computer-led - leading to the belief that the human touch has largely been lost. But it is no coincidence that the imaginative mind behind one of the most successful car marques in existence takes influence from beyond the computer screen in order to design cars that provoke thought, interest, emotion and affection.
The Range Rover is just such a car. Launched in its original guise in 1970, it truly deserves to be called a 'design icon' - a status it has achieved through four model generations, the latest of which has even been hailed as 'possibly the best car ever made'.
And now, as Range Rover celebrates its 45th anniversary, Land Rover's Design Director and Chief Creative Officer Gerry McGovern gives an insight into five objects that have inspired and influenced the way in which he approaches his work.
