“When designing a new object, the basic idea is to create something memorable, so we worked with this in mind,” explains David Wilkie, Head of the CNH Industrial Design Center. “The result is a recipe where technology, elegance and top-of-the-line materials are perfectly balanced.  Being recognized together with the world’s top brands and product designers is not only both a great honor and source of satisfaction, but also powerful motivation to continue on our marine design journey.”
