When we sat down with Dror, we wanted to talk about his design philosophy and approach, yes, but, we also wanted to see that approach in action. We wanted to expose the physical manifestation of his design aesthetic. Dror didn't know what was coming. As soon as the camera rolled, we emptied a box of Tinker Toys on a table and asked Dror to build something spontaneously. In the finished video, we not only get to talk to Dror about his work and philosophy, but we get to see him in action as he creatively solves a new challenge.
