Easy going: the new basics of better urbanism and liveability. The 2016 survey of the elements that define superior cities – and why a bit of action after sundown is as vital as bike lanes and smooth tram lines.
Men who are style-savvy exude a sense of relaxed confidence—from the hats on their heads to the soles of their shoes. To achieve this flair, they need a dependable set of sartorial tools that will see them through any occasion in any season, and bring out their individual personality.
From Tip to Toe features a carefully curated collection of brands and makers who all embody this spirit, as well as a selection of recommended shops from around the world. Some have long and storied histories while others bring new thinking to the table, but what they all share is a sense of quality, honesty, and élan that won’t let the stylish man down.
The highly individual cabins, hideaways, and summer homes featured in Hide and Seek offer their owners exceptional, yet convenient ways to escape urban routines and embed themselves into the land. These imaginative structures meld traditional architecture with modern living in fascinating and surprising ways. Whether located in the forest, on the water, or in the mountains; whether light and minimalistic or dark and cozy, the compelling dwellings exemplify how to create remote shelters that bring calm and balance to our hectic lives. With the right concept, furniture, décor, and atmosphere, even small or basic designs become stunning sanctuaries.
Hide and Seek is a contemporary survey of contextual architecture and interior design that channels our shared desire for peace and quiet. These projects not only have the power to get people in touch with their surroundings, but also with themselves.
This book is a dazzling compilation of dream houses with a view, photographed by James Silverman on his travels. Whether of a remote mountain cabin in Norway, a sensuous desert oasis in Morocco, or a monolithic concrete home in Switzerland, Silverman’s photographs capture the seemingly uninterrupted flow between interiors and exteriors. The featured architecture is defined by elements that absorb, reflect, or deliberately break with their surroundings.
Silverman’s images play with perspective and sight lines. They underline the harmony of perfectly composed juxtapositions of built structures and natural landscapes. Collected here, they also show how “infinite space” has established itself as a key precept of contemporary architecture around the world.
Kinfolk Issue Nineteen: The spring edition of Kinfolkexplores our relationship with adrenaline and its vital contribution to our quality of life.

If we aspire to live life instead of just watch it, our days won’t be safe or stilted: The best stories start with the most unexpected moments, and these experiences normally come from confronting our comfort zones instead of taking the easy, expected or well-lit route.
