In celebration of craft: seven spaces showcasing tradition and technique
From Auckland to Edinburgh, we handpick a selection of interiors that spotlight artisanal design and meticulously crafted materials.
Inside issue #220 we speak to Universal Design Studio about the studio’s legacy and future, as well as its work on The Office Group’s milestone 40th location at 210 Euston Road. We also sit down with Lore Group’s Jacu Strauss, who represents a new generation of bright ideas - most recently helming design on the landmark One Hundred Shoreditch. Elsewhere, we explore the latest in workplace, hospitality and residential design – including the new AstraZeneca headquarters from Ekho Studio, Basha-Franklin’s thoughtful reimagining of Related Argent’s King’s Cross home and are among the first to stay at one of the most-anticipated hotel openings of the year, Chateau Denmark. There’s also cause for celebration, as we highlight the projects, products and people shortlisted for the fast-approaching Mixology Awards, and recognise the leaders of tomorrow at our annual Mix 30 Under 30 event. Plus, the latest thought leadership from a slew of industry experts and regular Mix columnists, from competitive socialising via sustainability, commercial anthropology and the ‘homeification’ of the workplace. Thanks to this issue’s cover stars, Tarkett and NoChintz – collaborating with research agency Franklin Till to create a bespoke image featuring the fully-circular DESSO Origin collection.
NoChintz has created a typography design for this issue’s cover, working within the image supplied by Tarkett to create a subtle yet purposeful piece of type.
For Tarkett, the beauty of circularity is about the beauty of the used and reused materials that go into their products, innovative manufacturing processes and the knowledge that they’re actively cutting down on waste and greenhouse gas emissions. Created for Tarkett by Franklin Till and photographed by Victoria Ling, this issue’s cover features the DESSO Origin collection - a truly circular product and a collection that combines technical expertise with tactility and textural beauty. For new, and renewed, beginnings.View the cover archive
We explode some of the myths surrounding sustainability; consider whether good in practice trumps perfect on paper; and ask if sustainable design is an ongoing journey, not a destination.
Lore Group creative director, Jacu Strauss, discusses One Hundred Shoreditch and why his hotels will never be finished.
For Related Argent’s reimagined headquarters, Basha-Franklin was tasked with developing a space fit for changed working habits, that’s also good for the planet.
