ARK JOURNAL VOLUME 10 – ANNIVERSARY ISSUE
Ark Journal Volume 10 Is our tribute to the worlds of design and architecture – past, present, and future – which have defined and inspired our journey over the past five years. For this issue, we delve further into the intersections of human life with architecture and design, uncovering the profound impact they can have on our lives at home and in public spaces.
This time, we visit designer Phillip Lim´s beachside house in Long Island; a historic house in Düsseldorf remade for the artist Su Xiaobai; a brutalist home in Bruges; Henri Timi’s workshop in Marche, to name a few. We speak to Formafantasma and Tadao Ando, as well as inviting Colin King to style and curate the craft culture-centred collection of American designer Jack Lenor Larsen. Our case studies with stylist Pernille Vest continue, exploring the perfectly imperfect, unpolished edges and raw materiality that reveals simple perfection.
At Ark Journal, we believe that our magazine is more than just a publication; it’s a celebration of the beauty and simplicity that defines Scandinavian design and architecture. It has always been important to us that the material quality of Ark Journal matches the honest and inventive design stories in the magazine.
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. 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.
