NO7 offers an intimate look into the longest project Michael Anastassiades has ever worked on: his own place in Waterloo, London. This balanced equilibrium stands in a staunch contrast to the feminine refinement of the of up and coming Cristiana Celestino’s house in Milan. Studio Job lives rural in the woods near Eindhoven, close to the one and only factory Gerrit Rietveld ever built; Weverij De Ploeg in Bergeijk. Coinciding with Dutch Design Week this issue features editorial stories on Eindhoven’s menagerie: the promising group Envisions and interviews with architects John Körmeling and designer Kiki van Eijk. Marcel Wanders explains his backgrounds and esoteric interests that influenced his views on the future of design in a new world order. And Danish brand Hay harks back to the days of functionalism re-launching the Result chair and Pyramid table designed in the sixties by grandees Wim Rietveld and Friso Kramer.
Lots of wonderful things.
