  • House B
    Impeccable minimalist architecture is something we’ve always been passionate about and it’s also synonymous with Swiss studio E2A Architects‘ work. Founded by brothers Piet & Wim Eckert, their latest residential project, House B, is a gorgeous geometric concrete structure that maximises natural light. Located along the Zurich Goldcoast, the house is designed to do something […]

  • Trinität Special Edition
    Japanese designer and art director Yuta Takahashi designed this special edition of the book Trinität by German theologian Michael Debus.

  • Rebranding Minimalissimo
    Since 2009, Minimalissimo’s identity was focused on serif typography, specifically the beautiful Baskerville typeface. You may think this was an unusual choice considering serif type is undoubtedly maximal in form, however it helped shape an identity for Minimalissimo, but I suppose you could say that it never felt the most suitable option. With this in […]

  • Common Projects SS15
    Common Projects footwear defines understated luxury and have become synonymous with quiet, clean, simple sneakers. I have been an admirer of the brand for some time now and considering their collection, in particular, their Spring Summer 2015 collection, designed with minimalist sensibilities, it should come as no surprise to see the New York-based brand featured […]
  • Nivis
    Shiro Studio is a London based design practice established by Andrea Morgante, committed to the creation of unique architecture and objects. Shiro means ‘white’ in Japanese, but here it implies a philosophical translation where white is perceived as the purest creative approach. An approach which has seen the design of the award winning Nivis — […]
