Faces of GM: Buick Interior Design Director Michael Burton

An official video interview where Buick Interior Design Director gives some insights on the sources of inspiration for interior design and speaks about future challenges.


Michael Burton explains how automotive designers draw inspiration from fashion, architecture and nature, and also – as with the new Enclave – from past successes and customer feedback.

The short video is part of the “Faces of GM” ongoing series, featuring creative designers and artists working at General Motors.

Below we also report a previous interview with Michael Burton dated November 2006, where he speaks about the design of the Buick Enclave concept car’s interior.

Among the protagonists of previous episodes of the “Faces of GM series” is color and trim designer Magdalena Kokoszynska.
