Abstract: The Art of Design

This exclusive clip gives a preview of the new design documentary series Abstract: The Art of Design, which will bring Bjarke Ingels, Es Devlin, Ilse Crawford and more into the living rooms of Netflix's global audience.

Launching internationally tomorrow, Friday 10 February, the series profiles eight designers representing different fields in the industry.

Along with Ingels, Devlin and Crawford from the fields of architecture, stage design and interior design respectively, there's graphic designer Paula Scher, automobile designer Ralph Gilles, Nike shoe designer Tinker Hatfield, illustrator Christoph Niemann and photographer Platon.

The series is exclusive to the Netflix streaming service, which reaches an audience of more than 93 million members in over 190 countries.

Following in the footsteps of Netflix's ongoing docu-series The Chef's Table, Abstract: The Art of Design will focus on a different designer.

The episodes are helmed by different directors – including the likes of Morgan Neville, who was behind the Academy Award-winning music documentary 20 Feet From Stardom – and take different storytelling and aesthetic approaches.

The eight episodes will be released collectively on Friday, 10 February.
