5 designers with a passion for high-end OG wheels.
Have you ever wondered what a chef prepares to eat alone at home? Or if a singer sings in the shower?
And how about designers, what do they choose when it comes to driving?
We don't have the answers to the first few questions, but luckily we chat with global creatives all the time. In addition to the joint work, many of them collect statement clothes, pieces of art, and the sickest cars ever.
Enjoy, because we're going to open 5 very exclusive garages for you.
1. Daniel Arsham.
The multidisciplinary American designer lives with his cars as if they were his roommates. Known for being a true machine and leather interior sculptor, he has collaborated with Porsche, as shown here, and created his own version of a Ferrari 250GT California. Arsham has a 1991 Carrera mint green 964, a Porsche 930A, and many other machines he has customized in his garage.
2. Tristan Auer.
The designer who doesn’t give up detailed craftsmanship, a keen eye, and high-quality materials in his creations owns a Lotus Esprit from 1980. No, he will never sell his James Bond car. Founder of Car Tailoring, Auer specializes in future-proof leather interiors not just for Porsches and Ferraris, but for jets and trains as well.
3. Kerby Jean-Raymond.
Reebok's artistic director and Pyer Moss's designer seems to like to keep his complete car collection under wraps. But like any car lover, he didn't hold back and revealed his top 3: an Aston Martin Superleggera, a McLaren 720s, and a Porsche GT3RS.
4. Teddy Santis.
The mind of the new-New Balance seems to combine the retro aesthetics of his creations with his favorite cars. On his Instagram feed, Aimé Leon Dore’s founder shows snaps of his Range Rover and Porsche, having collaborated with the Austrian on restorations of the 911 (964) Carrera 4 and the 911SC.
In fact, inspired by auto design, NB has recently worked with Casablancas on the triple white XC-72. It’s the union of sculpture and movement, like a '90s Italian sports car.
5. Tommaso Spinzi.
The Italian designer takes his 4-wheel references to different aspects of his life and creations. We recently visited his studio in Milan, and auto design references are everywhere. His Gentleman Driving Armchair lives under the same roof as his Porsche, and he tells us that his favorite ones are the Italians Alfa Romeo and Lancia.
It's impossible to have a creative block when your car goes from 0 to 100km/h in less than 10 seconds.
