Abstract It is currently one of the best documentaries on Netflix. Each episode tells about the life and work of a successful designer – whether in graphic design, architecture, sneaker design, photography, interior design or illustration. The method is adapted to the person concerned. In architect Bjarke Ingels, for example, we get drone shots of his impressive buildings, which also do a good job of portraying Ingels’ senseless figure. With Christoph Niemann, the famous illustrator of The New York TimesThe episode is rather quiet, punctuated by his own graphics and accompanied by b-roll footage illustrating Niemann’s unusual thought process and simple way of working.

Although different, all episodes brilliantly demonstrate how to make informative art about art. The absolute recommendation whether it is stony or sober.

in popular It’s all about the social effects of consumption and simplicity as an alternative. The frugal lifestyle can be traced back to spiritual figures such as Buddha or Jesus, and in modern times it has been particularly popular in the art scene since the 1960s.

Fortunately, there is this documentary – and after 80 minutes you will feel the urgency to clean your apartment even if you have been stoned.

British architect and actress exploring “unconventional homes in extreme places”. That’s all it takes to get a high degree of relaxation and pleasure from an aesthetic point of view. Each episode revolves around a different terrain, from the mountains to the forests to the coast.

And both hosts are either eccentric enough to keep you entertained or British enough to gently lull you to sleep on your couch. Both are fine.
