Netflix has made all eight episodes of its documentary series Abstract: The Art of Design, which features set designer Es Devlin, architect Bjarke Ingels and interior designer Ilse Crawford, available to watch for free during coronavirus lockdown.
Streaming company Netflix has made season one of its design series available on Youtube as part of an initiative to make its documentaries free to watch during the coronavirus lockdown.
“For many years, Netflix has allowed teachers to screen documentaries in their classrooms,” said Netflix. “However, this isn’t possible with schools closed. So at their request, we have made a selection of our documentary features and series available on our Youtube channel.”
“We hope this will, in a small way, help teachers around the world,” the streaming company continued.
The series follows eight leading designers operating in different industries. There are episodes dedicated to Ingels, Devlin and Crawford, as well as graphic designer Paula Scher, automobile designer Ralph Gilles, Nike shoe designer Tinker Hatfield, illustrator Christoph Niemann and photographer Platon.
Season one was released in 2017, with season two following in 2019 – this series is not yet available on Youtube.
