Driven by Design is a video series hosted by Coalesse Global Design Director John Hamilton that explores what drives the international design community. Each episode follows Hamilton as he talks with innovators from around the world about creativity, inspiration and their work, all while driving around town.
In the fourth episode of the series, Hamilton takes to the streets of NYC with industrial designer Harry Allen, the founder and president of Harry Allen Design. Allen's wide-ranging interests (including visual art, materiality and a systematic design approach) provide a base of inspiration for designing intelligent products and interiors. The pair discuss Manufacturing 4.0, the culture of American making and more as they traverse the busy streets of Manhattan.
