Robin Page, Bentley head of interior designer at 2010 NAIAS

North American International Auto Show (NAIAS), Detroit, MI – Robin Page is the head of interior design for Bentley. He has been designing cars for Bentley and Rolls-Royce since 1995.

Page talks about bringing out the 1930 8-liter vehicle at the Pebble Beach Concours d’Elegance and what that symbolized for Bentley.

What does Bentley have on the Mulsanne, in interior and exterior design, that we have not seen on any other Bentley?

How does Page balance technology with design and tradiiton?

Page opens the door and shows us the the end of the instrument panel so that you can see the thickness of the wood, and that tells us that the instrument panel wood trim is solid wood. They, like, Rolls-Royce, have mirror matching for their wood.
