In the November/December issue, Material Futures, we dissect the fabric of tomorrow.
Our Harvest pages are packed with daring, bold interiors, while our Kitchens special celebrates the hub of the home. BMW’s Adrian van Hooydonk divulges where mobility is headed, and we take a critical look at e-tailers of design.
Designers dive below sea level. Lexus lets skateboarders walk on air. Tate Britain engages the five senses. Tailoring goes digital. Synthetic biology offers potential inhalable vaccines. All this and more bubbling at the fringes of the great indoors.
Linehouse makes modern moves in Shanghai, Alfredo Haberli relates his rise to success. Claire Morgan shows off her wild side. Brand van Egmond dramatizes with light. Hem attempts to break the e-tail curse. All this and more perspectives on people.
Bompas & Parr gets drunk on air. Alexandre de Betak channels a church and Mad Max for Dior. Yusuke Seki constructs a pottery podium. Odile Decq revisits the '70s. Prada creates a sticky situation in-store. Toyo Ito upsizes accessories. It’s the pick of the crop from the worlds of art and design.
Surfaces that respond to stimuli, surroundings that self-assemble, building blocks that reproduce themselves: materials are getting seriously smart. In this issue’s Frame LAb, we explore alchemic approaches and their chances of surviving the wider world, and uncover five directions for tomorrow’s materials.
Gaggenau cooks up a visual feast. Leicht markets itself with a physical space. Caesarstone moves beyond the countertop. Manufacturers join forces with design icons and move towards smart appliances.
