Season 2, Ep. 1
International designer Ini Archibong has lived a pretty incredible life. His lack of fear around asking for help has seen him walk into an architect's office off the street and convince them to train him, has seen the internet fund his fledgling career and has meant he's been able to design collections for brands such as Se and Hermes.
He grew up in LA, moved to Singapore and has since settled in the mountains of Switzerland, where his approach to putting his ambitions out into the world has helped turn him into one of this generation's most dynamic creatives.

Season 2, Ep. 7
Bill Amberg’s luxury leather goods - his bags, his purses, his baby slings and his floors, are characterised by their buttery softness, by the caramel tones and bright colours, and by how lovely they are to touch. But although his goods tend to belong in a fairly rarfied world, Bill himself is welcoming, passionate and playful inventor, constantly looking for new ways to improve on the material that has been the enduring love affair of his career. He came of age in London at the same time as Tom Dixon, when there was a punky attitude and anything goes approach to design, and its fascinating to see how that feeling has stayed with him throughout his career.
