Jaguar, interview with Ian Callum: electric, autonomous guide, the future of sedans
Jaguar was one of the protagonists of Milan Design Week, with The Future Legacy, an installation that deconstructs the major components of the new Jaguar XE to offer a new point of view on the contamination between product design and car design. For us it was the opportunity to meet with the Director of Design of Jaguar, Ian Callum: the british designer, we talked about the role of design in the definition of the electric car and autonomous, but also for the future of the conventional hatchback, today surpassed by the SUV and crossover.
Scottish, born in 1954, Ian Callum is a car designer graduated in Industrial Design at the Glasgow School of Art the first and Automobile Design at the Royal College of Art in London then. Before joining Jaguar in 1999, Callum has worked for 12 years at the Ford Design Studios, helping to design the Ford Escort RS Cosworth and the Ghia Via Concept. Later became Chief Designer at TWR Design, where he has followed the birth of the Aston Martin DB7 and Vanquish.
As Director of Design, Ian Callum has renewed deep in the style of the car Jaguar: its the concept of the R-Coupe, RD-6 and C-X75. The first new model to bear his signature was, in 2005, XK, followed by the sedans XF and XJ. In 2012 it was the turn of another piece from the 90's, the F-TYPE, the first two places after the legendary E-Type. Its also the first SUV of the Jaguar F-PACE, which has paved the way to products such as I-PEACE (the first Jaguar 100% electric), AND e-PEACE.Camera Wide for excellence?
