transcendent city

Recently we were going through some of our blog posts that we never actually got around to putting up live, and we found this from three years ago. We hope you enjoy!

As part of a making Mondays a bit more enjoyable, we post animations which either we make, or are found on the internet and made by others and are about design, to serve as inspiration.

Built in Detroit

Can a new wave of high-end ventures like watchmaker Shinola help revive manufacturing in the motor city?

Extract from Time, vol 103, No 12, 2014.

"The factory floor is silent but not empty. Dozens of workers dressed in crisp white lab coats, hairnets and matching Crocs are maneuvering dollhouse-size hand tools and manipulating minuscule parts to assemble wristwatches. With loupes to eyes, one line builds the movement - the timepieces' quartz-powered brain. Another line does nothing but put the dials in place while another set the hands, fix the case backs and lash the leather straps. This isn't a clean room in Geneva or a Chinese factory in Shenzen. These movements are taking place behind the floor-to-ceiling glass wall that separates Shinola's Detroit headquarters from its sprawling state-of-the-art factory."
