Design Anthology Issue 4 (UK Edition) is available now on loremnotipsum.com. In issue 04 of Design Anthology UK we pay homage to the five human senses with an atmospheric shoot of design objects, to slightly eerie effect. We hear the story of a Dutch artist’s serene abode within a cargo boat moored outside of Amsterdam; we peek inside a newly restored 17th century cottage in Connecticut, which has been given a contemporary treatment by transatlantic practice, Nune; we speak to two friends who have started a business sourcing and selling beautiful, rare posters created in Poland after World War II; we trawl the streets of Columbia’s sprawling, high-altitude capital, Bogotá, to find a vibrant food and design scene; we visit San Sebastián and the sculpture park created by revered artist Eduardo Chillida, which has recently re-opened after a nine year hiatus; we speak to the founders of Ninety Percent, the ethical fashion label that only keeps 10% of its profits, plus more.
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.
