Join Veejay Gahir for an in-depth discussion in this video What are the biggest challenges in designing the interior of a car?, part of Insights on Automotive Design with Veejay Gahir.
We're always fighting for real estate. When you look at an interior of a vehicle we have, a seating group, we have a group that's developing the instrument panel in the center stack. The center console the cap's headline is and the, and the pills. So really, it's a case of negotiating where we are constantly negotiating with engineering groups, we are constantly negotiating with human factors. So sometimes, if you are responsible for the seating area and you know that you need that extra one inch of knee clearance.
So you now have to negotiate with the with the people that are developing the instrument panel, for example. And I've been in some quite heated discussions, where you have to literally, you are fighting, for, for real estate so, what I gain, they lose. So, you know, it can have a negative impact, and if it is a negative impact then obviously you know, you're not going to win that fight. But I think for interior design it is, it's a constant negotiation, it's a constant battle to try to get your com, your components or your piece of the real estate to, to the best design that you can.
