Karma Automotive (formerly Fisker) hires Tesla’s lead interior designer
It appears there could be a change of pace in Tesla’s interior design team. While we recently reported that the automaker hired the lead designer behind the Porsche Mission E’s interior, we now learn that now two senior designers from Tesla’s interior team have left the company since the beginning of the year and that the latest to leave just joined competitor Karma Automotive this week.
Patrick Grimmel, Senior Interior Designer at Tesla from 2011 to 2016, left the automaker earlier this year to go back to freelancing, and Andre Franco Luis, Lead Interior Designer at Tesla from 2011 to 2016, left last month and now we learn that he joined Karma Automotive, formerly known as Fisker Automotive, as Interior Design Manager.
