“A good idea is often surprisingly simple”. Ferdinand Alexander Porsche celebrates his 75th birthday
Professor Ferdinand Alexander Porsche, founder of the luxury brand Porsche Design, celebrates his 75th birthday on December 11, 2010. Born in Stuttgart, the eldest son of Ferry Porsche headed up the Stuttgart-based sports car maker’s design studio from 1962 to 1972 – the period during which the Porsche 911 and the 904 race car were created. In 1972, he established his own design studio, relocating it two years later to Zell am See in Austria. During the decades that followed, he designed accessories such as watches, spectacles and writing instruments. Working with a team of a dozen designers, he also styled a host of industrial products, household appliances and consumer products for well-known international companies. Today, the studio in Zell am See is one of the most renowned design houses in the world.
