Design lovers: pull up a sofa and get ready for a serious Netflix binge sesh. On February 10, Netflix is revealing a show called Abstract: The Art of Design that features conversations about the revolutionary impetus of design. The series features rock star architect and BIG founder Bjarke Ingels, graphic designer Paula Scher, automotive designer Ralph Gilles and interior designer Ilse Crawford, among others.
Netflix just released a preview of the show, which will be released in its entirety on February 10th. It shows Bjarke Ingels flying through the air like Superman, which is apt, since Ingels promises to be a superhero of a star for a show about design. The gregarious architect routinely garners massive audiences for his TED talks and he has been featured in numerous major magazines.
Other designers on the show may be slightly less well known, but they are massively important in their own fields. Ilse Crawford has changed the way interior design impacts the way we live, Nike designer Tinker Hatfield oversees Nike’s Innovation Kitchen and photographer Platon has helped us see world leaders in a way we never have before.
The show is produced by Wired Editor-in-Chief Scott Dadich. “Abstract is an eight-episode documentary series about creativity, about visionary designers who shape the world around us—from architecture to illustration, cars to typography,” said Dadich.
