The work of Florian Schneider first came to the attention by the tip off from a friend via the visual social world of Instagram. I wanted to note this in particular as the visual aspect of that media platform is reflective of what perhaps demands your attention when first gazing upon a Millimetric Instrument. Handbuilt in Canada by Florian, A hypnotically simplistic style and design greets you, and it is clear that there are so many more influences than just the guitar world behind these instruments and the Millimetric brand aesthetic.. I was really keen to learn more about that. I've personally been infatuated ever since, keen to see more of his work and to learn more of the brand, so I knew at some point I had to get Florian involved in my Meet the maker interview series. Luckily for me, Florian was happy to speak with me! So let's delve in, as I'm itching to learn more!
Prisma Guitars have been getting some serious video airtime this year already, with Discovery Channel releasing an episode of 'How It's Made' featuring Nick's luthier work receiving over 5.5 million, yup, million! views on Facebook alone. As well as a bunch of great videos emerging from this year's NAMM show. Well this one is a great place to start, with our friend Sam Atkins of The Guitar Magazine paying Nick a visit and talking through some features and new models (as well as a nice few shoutouts about yours truly which was a nice surprise!)
