In their respective fields, both Benjamin Clymer and Kenyan Lewis have followed their passion, creating a new path for themselves, and have at the same time made an important contribution to the cultural and creative conversation. To tell the stories of these creative individuals ACL has partnered with Timberland to create The Experts, a symposium of the people around us who, like Timberland, hold significant the values of craft, process, provenance, art and style.
Benjamin Clymer, the founder and editor of the watch website Hodinkee has done more to bring the often lofty world of fine timepieces into an arena that is equal parts unpretentious, inclusive and informative. It’s a delicate balance that was struck out of his genuine passion for horology. This is his story.
Kenyan Lewis is an artistic and multifaceted prop stylist, artist, sign painter and interior designer. He’s the type of person who can create aesthetic solutions for nearly any application. Over the years, Kenyan has created beautiful custom signage and interiors of nearly every stripe in New York and abroad. Like his work, Kenyan’s story is unique.
The Experts: an ACL series celebrating the people who inspire us to keep innovating and creating every day, and who like Timberland, have a mutual respect for well-crafted style. Learn more about the Experts here.
