Watch this one-on-one interview with the legendary naval designer, author and car design extraordinaire Patrick le Quement. Speaking from his home in Paris, he covers his current roles in boat design and as president of the advisory board of the sustainable design school in Nice. He also delves into his past at Ford, Volkswagen and Renault.

“I have always wanted to shape the change, rather than change the shape,” le Quement says. “That was my approach as a designer. When I got into companies where I could take a design direction I was very much involved in new concepts. I’ve always been fascinated by new ideas and by answering the questions that customers don’t actually ask themselves.”
