Design Anthology Issue 2 (UK Edition) is out now. For the second issue of Design Anthology UK, we visit designers Space Copenhagen in their studio and explore the best places to stay, eat and see in America’s Motor City, Detroit. We speak to architects Ohlab about their new hotel project, Can Bordoy, in Palma and capture Hauser & Wirth’s Somerset gallery, Make, on a hazy, sunny day.
Further into the issue, we cover some of the best residential design in the UK and Europe, such as a serene London home designed by Takero Shimazaki – where concrete intersects with classic Italian architecture – and a 5-storey Brussels townhouse with interiors by Pierre Yovanovitch, and packed to the gills with contemporary art.
Finally, we survey Rome’s rationalist architecture – from creations by Gio Ponti to Luigi Moretti – and how The Weston, a new gallery erected on the grounds of Yorkshire Sculpture Park, has added to some of England’s most celebrated landscape. Last but not least comes the Style section, where we compile a shoot of striking, geometric jewellery pieces and tell the story of a rural Portuguese family that has updated its centuries-old, bag-weaving business for 2019.
Design Anthology UK is a triannual print magazine spotlighting the best of design, architecture, art, travel and style across Europe. As with Design Anthology, our sister publication in Asia, we combine the highest production values with thought-provoking content, setting a new standard for premium design and lifestyle titles in the UK. When we were shaping ideas for the inaugural issue, we asked two questions: What is our point of view? And, when there are countless other magazines covering design in Europe: Why now? The answer is fairly straightforward. We believe there is room for a new kind of considered, premium title that champions quality, beauty and innovative thinking. Each issue is put together by our network of writers, photographers, editors and stylists – all bound by a commitment to creativity and candor. Far from a glossy catalogue to be discarded, Design Anthology UK is a collectible volume made by people who are passionate about print.
