Great things are done with small teams, a skunkworks. I’ve always worked in a small team from my times working at Porsche and then Volkswagen / Audi - always small teams. So, what I think it does is it pares down all the fat. Everybody becomes accountable.
I draw inspiration from what surrounds me – as I mentioned earlier, the world truly has become a smaller place – I don't find it uncommon to discuss a Jean Nouvel skyscraper being built in NYC with an email pen pal in Shanghai or have a friend in Dubai tell me about Zaha Hadid's proposal for an art center. But at the center of any great product there is always a good story and I feel it's at that point where I pull inspiration.
