Michelle Christensen, NSX Lead Exterior Designer and Ted Klaus, NSX Global Development Leader joined us for our last Open Garage Talk of 2017, The Secret to the Best Products: Design Something Impossible to Make, in a moderated discussion with Diego Rodriguez, Chief Product + Design Officer, Intuit. The design process for the new NSX lead by Michelle and Ted, was an interweaving of design elements from the inside out incorporating new materials and technologies to embody 'human fit' that would invoke excitement and high performance. Other themes discussed included use of analog tools, design cues taken from the original NSX, and cross-cultural development. View the video recording here.
