DE­SIGN­ING THE IN­TE­RIOR of a Rolls-Royce is not an easy job. Cer­tain things are givens: fine woods and leathers, tra­di­tional ven­ti­la­tion el­e­ments, round in­stru­ments. Some are newly im­posed by the cur­rent pro­pri­etors: mak­ing sure all metal as­pect el­e­ments are ac­tu­ally made of metal, as in the re­cent Phan­tom VIII. Oth­ers are vari­able, as in the sur­pris­ing glass-en­closed dio­rama sec­tion on that same Phan­tom known as the Gallery, ex­cluded here. This is not a par­tic­u­larly har­mo­nious com­po­si­tion, but it is ap­pro­pri­ate to a Rolls-Royce, as it would def­i­nitely not be for a Mercedes-May­bach or a Cadil­lac.
