Ark Journal Volume 2 is here. In Volume 2 we go around the world to meet public figures in their private spaces. We visit a Paris-based fashion icon who has turned her discerning sense of materiality to creating one-off collectible furniture. We spend a day with an internationally acclaimed artist in his gallery-like home in Berlin and the country retreat where he’s building a creative studio. We talk to legendary photographer Francois Halard about the power of the personal and run an exclusive insert from his new book, an intimate portrait of extraordinary homes and artist studios. Delving into the archives of the great Danish modernist Jørn Utzon, we visit two of his rarely shown houses that show his genius for designing homes that enrich their inhabitants’ lives.

At Ark Journal we explore the spaces around us, the objects we put in them and the people who make them. Bridging architecture, design and art, we show them as interplay rather than in silos, and with a sense of enduring Scandinavian values and aesthetics. We celebrate good ideas, honest and inventive design and materials and encourage critical debate. Each issue we visit extraordinary homes around the world that are more than the sum of their parts and that express the personal narratives of the people who live in them, their philosophies and influences. By placing architecture at the core of Ark Journal, we want to consider it in the broader context of our lives, reflecting its more humanistic side and celebrating tactility and individual dimensions.
Copenhagen-based, Ark Journal is a biannual magazine founded by Editor-in-Chief Mette Barfod and made by an experienced team of designers, stylists, photographers and editors. The 240-page magazine is sold in 25 countries around the world.
