Jonathan Ive's iPhone
"Credit Jonathan Ive, design guru for Apple; he has an uncanny skill for imparting a device with simplicity, distinction and inevitability. He could probably design a better triangle, and when he was done you’d realize that three sides were one side too many," writes American columnist James Lileks.
Collaborating with Apple's manufacturing, software, hardware and electronic teams, the British designer has created the iconic, best-selling iMac, iPod and iPhone.
Ive drives an Aston Martin, and loves music and machines that solve problems in a calm and serene way. "It's all about music," he says.
