William Hardie is best known for his technical and design skills in the UK Channel 4 series George Clarke’s Amazing Spaces and Shed of the Year competition, where small simple structures with ingenious designs solve often complex problems.

William is a champion of ground-breaking design and technology delivered using traditional skills and materials as well as the latest innovations available. Founder of Studio Hardie, William works with a specialist team of expert carpenters, cabinet makers, timber framers and shipwrights who use their craft-based skills to solve complex problems by creating inspiring project builds for individuals, organisations and TV audiences around the world. In a digital age their vernacular skills are in great demand - using old knowledge and pushing it into exciting new forms, often in challenging environments to achieve spectacular results.

Commenting on this new collaboration, William said: “As designers and makers of unique objects, we have a strong reliance on quality hand and power tools. Nothing we do is everyday or standard. Redefining what’s possible - and often up against tight deadlines - innovation, precision and reliability are key elements in our success. Triton Precision Power Tools share these values of traditional quality and progressive thinking, and we are proud to endorse their products.”

In this short film, William gives us an insight into the background of Studio Hardie and his own personal take on the rise of the maker generation.
