Isle x Carhartt WIP Paving Spaces Trailer

Isle and Carhartt WIP have been working on a colaboration for some time know and you can watch the trailer to Paving Space by Raphaël Zarka. 

The project originated with Carhartt WIP approaching Isle skateboards to work on a collaborative collection. ISLE, which started in 2013, has always prided itself on artist led conceptually driven ideas. Carhartt WIP and ISLE could think of no one better than artist and fellow skateboarder, Raphaël Zarka. When they approached Zarka, he had been researching the work of 19th Century mathematician Arthur Moritz Schoenflies. Schoenflies – a master of geometry and crystallography – had developed his own three dimensional models that specifically captivated Zarka’s attention, inspired with their sculptural potential.The film invites you to view Zarka’s large scale reconstructions of Schoenflies’ models re-appropriated in a way never imagined before.
