Jung Hyun Lee: Automotive design

Volvo Cars lead exterior designer Jung Hyun Lee talks about the inevitability of great design, function over form, and the first thing he does when designing a car.

Living in Sweden, Jung Hyun Lee learned a great deal about enjoying coffee and appreciating Scandinavian design. Simplicity, minimalism and the purpose behind the design were all concepts that became essential to his work as the lead exterior designer for the second generation Volvo XC60.

“If you keep taking away lines and simplify a design, it will last longer.” – Jung Hyun Lee
