Volume 12 (Reframe)

relook, rethink, rearrange

A framed arrangement of decor as art, as featured in ‘Modern Makeover’ on p162. Photography by Greg Cox and styling by Jochen Pohlmann.
Our autumn edition emerges from the balmy summer months with renewed energy. We seek out people who infuse personality into everything they touch. We explore homes and spaces that have been reinvigorated by bold souls, where boundaries are challenged through clever collaboration and innovation. We celebrate vibrant urban style and the infectious vitality it ignites through art, architecture and design.
