Karim Habib, head of BMW Design is leaving the company. Habib’s leave comes just months after Anders Warming left his lead design role at MINI which itself wasn’t long after Benoit Jacob left BMWi.

When we spoke to Karim at NAIAS a few years ago it was after a long day and many interviews. But his eagerness to talk about design and the future of transportation was obvious and even infectious.

If the rumor is true it’s a big blow for BMW. Habib was not just a fantastic designer but had a clear vision for the future that has helped drive BMW as a leader in the automotive world.
