In a perfect world, what would we replace those materials with?
"Chrome. I see that and stainless steel as a material of the future. The last few years have been very much about looking to the past. In crisis, as in an economic recession, people look back to feel comfortable. It’s like climbing back into the womb. With all the economies of the world getting better and people getting more buoyant, you will see a lot sleeker, more confident materials coming into play. Hopefully brighter and happier things."
