AUCKLAND, N.Z. - New Zealand furniture designer Resident has created the "Symphony of Manufacturing Sounds" - a short film that celebrates the noise of the furniture manufacturing process. Check it out above.

Resident created the film to celebrate "the honest and stark grounded reality of craftsmanship."

"The aim of the project was to combine the aspects of native audio and imagery, to illustrate the raw beauty of manufacturing," Resident co-founder Scott Bridgens told Wallpaper. "So often we see picture-perfect, polished manufacturing imagery, which is almost unbelievable. With the symphony we wanted to celebrate the honest and stark grounded reality of craftsmanship. We chose to make an original score out of factory noises to celebrate the skills of our people, whose unique abilities allow us to sculpt, manipulate and evolve precious materials into precious products."

Resident also released the video to celebrate its 10-year anniversary.
