Chris Bangle, former head of design department BMW, will receive the award for achievement in design.
It would seem that awards in the field of automotive design to deliver specialized organization or publication. But obviously at the Detroit Institute of Ophthalmology workers opinion otherwise. So, they’re going to reward the achievements in the field of design Chris Bangle (Chris Bangle), who previously worked on the exterior of the car group BMW .
Bangle design department is headed by BMW from 1992 to 2009-th year. Thanks to him, the light went out the previous generation BMW 7-Series, 5-Series and Z4, and the Rolls-Royce Ghost and Phantom and the new Mini.
Work Bangle perceived very ambiguous. For example, criticized the aforementioned 7-Series, BMW Z4 and a famous designer Marc Nyuon (Marc Newon) said that his appearance was designed “with a machete.” On the other hand, few can argue with the fact that the new Mini Cooper is still possible to consider a model of modernized retro.
Whatever it was, but in June of next year, U.S. Ophthalmologists Bangle hand over the award. Before him, her owners were so famous car designers Sergio Pininfarina as Walter de Silva, Shiro Nakamura, and Giorgetto Giugiaro.
