Jozef Kabaň – New Head of Design
Rolls-Royce Motor Cars has appointed 46-year old Jozef Kabaň as the new Head of Design for the 115-year old super-luxury English marque.
Kabaň, 46, is an experienced and talented designer, having spent the majority of his career at a senior level in automotive design. Kabaň joins Rolls-Royce Motor Cars from the BMW Group where he has been Head of Design Studio BMW since 2017.
Passionate about car design and art from an early age, and with an obsession for detail, Kabaň completed his studies in Bratislava and London, concluding with a Master of Art in Car Design at the Royal College of Art in London. Aged just 20, Kabaň was one of the youngest ever designers to join the VW Group. He progressed rapidly, and in 1998 he was awarded project lead for the Bugatti Veyron, for which he designed the exterior. He gained global recognition for the design, demonstrating his ability, even at this early stage in his career, to combine the automotive world with those of luxury and art. Kabaň is married with a daughter and a son and will be based at the company’s design studios in Goodwood, West Sussex and Munich.
