Creators meets with Assemble, an award-winning design collective from London, who are building a unique kind of "Factory" for the launch of brand new creative space, A/D/O, in Greenpoint, Brooklyn. Assemble's Louis Schulz and Lewis Jones tell us how the theme of Utopia vs. Dystopia as well as the arts and crafts movement have inspired Assemble to create an entirely new idea of what a factory can be: one in which workers and the larger community can take creative joy in building and reaping the benefits of its products. In using the Factory build itself as a way to design products, they've created an exciting blueprint for an ecosystem that places whimsical experimentation, people's empowerment and connectivity to the larger world first.
