An A Magazine Curated By special print project in partnership with Acne Studios, conceived as a visual essay by acclaimed French photographer Philippe Chancel revealing the inner workings of Floragatan 13, the former Czech embassy in Stockholm, Sweden transformed into a fashion atelier and corporate office.
On the occasion of the unveiling of the new Acne Studios headquarters in Stockholm, Sweden, A Magazine Curated By presents Floragatan 13 Curated By Acne Studios, an architectural and design survey of this exceptional building and its contemporary usage as a fashion atelier and corporate office.
This 100-page document delves into the building floor by floor, beginning with the sixth level management offices and descending ten storeys through each crucial component of the design and production ateliers including inspiring and communal spaces such as the ground floor library, underground canteen and photo studio. Numerous floors reveal bespoke and site-specific design projects by long-time Acne Studios favourites including a state-of-the-art lighting network designed by Benoit Lalloz, furniture by Max Lamb, and artworks by Daniel Silver. Philippe Chancel’s crisp, exacting photography is accompanied by insightful quotes by Acne Studios creative director Jonny Johansson, architect Johannes Norlander, the Acne Studios teams and external collaborators.

The Evergreen Sindrom is a journey we embarked on before our world was enthralled by a pandemic that disrupted our ways of living. It felt like the perfect timing to explore green - a colour that breathes life; in all its forms - considering the moment in time our world found itself. Now, this issue feels more relevant than ever. These times call for industries to rethink processes and values, and for humans to rethink their approach to consumerism, their everyday lifestyle, and contribution to society. The world has slowed down, taking a step back to get a bird’s-eye view of the new reality, and the new behaviours we aim towards.
In this issue:
Green is, above all, the colour of life. In this edition, we explored life in all its forms, with a particular interest in the evergreen. What does prosperity mean now, how do we manage to continue growing, reinvent ourselves, and change our ways? What is evergreen design? Why is the human-nature relationship so vital? Is it important to talk to plants? When did we lose our connection to the natural world, and did we leave anything valuable behind? What is some of the evergreen wisdom that’s been passed down through generations? We explore all of this within 160 pages of conceptual, carefully-curated editorials, thought pieces and striking visual essays.
Covers by Aiste Ambrazeviciute and Anne Marie Jo.
Sindroms is a journal of monochrome states of mind, published in print biannually. Curating its content based on specific colours, it investigates them across culture, and immerses its readers in the feelings and moods evoked by each colour.
In issue 06 of Design Anthology UK, we discusses the rise of hyper-real computer-generated images in the age of the pandemic. We collaborate with one of Europe’s foremost epicurean designers, Studio Appetit, on a specially formulated D/A UK cocktail based on the emotional rollercoaster of the last five months. Artist Sinta Tantra opens up about a race and diversity in the art world. We look at the upcoming design district in London’s Greenwich Peninsula. Plus much more, including a host of inspiring interiors such as the one on our cover designed by talented duo, Marcante Testa.
Design Anthology UKis 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 candour. Far from a glossy catalogue to be discarded, Design Anthology UK is a collectible volume made by people who are passionate about print.

Dedicated to the perfectly shaped object that is the dream of every visionary architect, but a source of great distress to the unsporty among us: the ball.

Colour is science, psychology, and communication, but in art and design it is also about perception and choice. Colour is fun, packed with emotion, and is personal, but it can also become dangerously political. In DAMN°76 we explore some of the most colourful myths and realities – from naked cowboys riding pink unicorns to the corrupt power of the American greenback – and get new insights into how the use of colour feeds and challenges our perceptions. We look at the latest exhibitions and projects and talk to some of the artists and designers whose work dares us to recalibrate our thinking on the politics of colour – especially given the huge changes the digital revolution has introduced.
The third issue of JEZGA covers the theme Body As A Canvas / Body As A Tool. Exploring two aspects of our physical selves, and the ways these functions are used in artistic practices.
We have collected stories of birth, death, violence, nature, motherhood, love, detox, nature, sanity and warped perception – we want to celebrate the photographers, artists, and designers who daringly connect with their own bodies, as well as those of others, to use them in their craft and convey unique perspectives.
This issue has a reversible cover – split down the middle between 'Canvas' and 'Tool'. Don't worry about picking your favourite, you'll get both.

VISIONS BY is a knowledge platform with an annual magazine that addresses the different perspectives on materiality and material cultures from a critical and speculative research focus. It aims at generating awareness through materials beyond their physical properties, and at considering materials as a new entitled discipline emerging from a design context.
Materials are inevitably linked to the evolution of humanity: they award identity, build heritage, and project futures. We focus on this social impact and perception of materials and the importance of materials in activating and dynamizing cultures and socioeconomic systems.
With annual presentations and participative performances by rising and consolidated designers, Visions By magazine issues are conformed by a curated eclectic mix of articles, photographic essays, interviews and case studies, englobing the different forms of understanding and exercising the material in a design context.

Re imagining an re framing an obsession with interiors, its bi annual magazine offers hyper-specific life style through photographic portfolios, interviews and commentary by the creative industry’s most influential photographers and writers.

As self-employed artists and printmakers, many of our readers may also be looking to the future and taking stock of the challenges ahead. But the printmaking community (along with the world as a whole) is getting creative and finding new ways to stay in touch and be there for each other – live-streaming their making sessions and sharing their knowledge and processes like never before.
It feels more important than ever to connect people with the universal themes within the articles in this issue. Be it Yu Chengyou’s landscapes that evoke a much needed sense of calm, or John Amoss through-hiking the Appalachian trail – a true tale of endurance and reflection. If you are self-isolating and need to look to new sources of inspiration, Evgeniya Dudnikova’s mixing of dreams and memories is something we can all try – so get that sketch book out, drift a while and write down your ideas – they might come in handy.
It’s definitely a time to reflect and take note of the important things in life. For so many of us, playing with print is as much a form of meditation as it is a creative expression, so make sure you are taking time to cut, ink and print – a much needed creative outlet during these strange and changing times.

In Volume III we focus on how we make sense of our world through art and how being surrounded by art enriches our lives. From their Berlin home, artist Anselm Reyle and architect Tanja Lincke talk about how building amid ruins helped them rediscover creative freedom. In Paris we meet the couple behind fashion brand Zadig & Voltaire whose art-filled home is imbued with their effortless style while in Milan we visit the apartment that is part private base, part project for the visionary co-founder of design firm Studiopepe and her photographer husband. In Helsinki we meet a couple whose life revolves around their remarkable collection of contemporary art and Finnish design. Star Danish architect and designer David Thulstrup reveals his latest residential project, a Copenhagen attic apartment inspired by his interiors of Noma restaurant. A photo essay by fashion photographer Henrik Bülow, run as a special 16-page insert, interprets the Bauhaus through the lens of fashion photography and still life. Exploring ephemerality and light a second insert showcases the beguiling art of Ann Veronica Janssens; stylist Pernille Vest uses transparent materials to express floating forms and Studio Oliver Gustav is the setting for a dialogue with the master of Nordic light, artist Vilhelm Hammershøi.
Ark Journal Volume III is out March 26.
At Ark Journal we explore the spaces around us, the objects we put in them and the people who make them. Bridging architecture, design and art, we show them as interplay rather than in silos, and with a sense of enduring Scandinavian values and aesthetics. We celebrate good ideas, honest and inventive design and materials and encourage critical debate. Each issue we visit extraordinary homes around the world that are more than the sum of their parts and that express the personal narratives of the people who live in them, their philosophies and influences. By placing architecture at the core of Ark Journal, we want to consider it in the broader context of our lives, reflecting its more humanistic side and celebrating tactility and individual dimensions.
Copenhagen-based, Ark Journal is a biannual magazine founded by Editor-in-Chief Mette Barfod and made by an experienced team of designers, stylists, photographers and editors. The 240-page magazine is sold in 25 countries around the world.
