The four23 film team will be travelling across Europe to create a five part film series focusing on the modern craftspeople exploring new technologies, new materials and new processes to push forward product design and innovation.
The first film of the series has been shot in Hackney, London featuring Mark Lim, model-maker, product designer and founder of Chalk Studios.
The film explores Chalk’s studio space, gaining insight into their approach to creating bespoke objects for a wide variety of industries. Mark discusses the process of combining the old and the new, to create new and innovative objects including a Modular Smartwatch, 3D printed letterpress typeface and the development of bio-concrete, a self-healing material.
The series will continue into 2016, with films featuring innovators in their crafts in Copenhagen, Paris, Amsterdam and Milan.
