EST MAGAZINE ISSUE 41 | Collect & Curate
‘Collect & Curate’ finds layers of character and meaning in homes designed by some of the world’s most renowned designers. Hollie Bowden’s Ibizan Finca revival story reflects the importance of place and the personal details within, while the significance of what’s deliberately pared-down is highlighted in Vincent Van Duysen’s own Portuguese holiday home to absorb stillness in the landscape.
In our ‘My Space’ feature we get to know Chandelier Creative founder Richard Christiansen and discover how his LA home, Flamingo Estate by Studio KO, seeks to be at one with the acres of working gardens surrounding it. Our story on minimalist UK designer John Pawson’s Home Farm reminds us to slow down through quiet design and simple pleasures, making it more than just a country escape.
I speak with some of our favourite Scandinavian makers, while we profile Geoffrey Hatty on the business of collecting. We’re listening to waves of nostalgia, inspired by New York’s disco nightclub Studio 54 and curating a conscious wardrobe of new and vintage pieces in our internationally-informed style edit.
In the ‘Detail’ we source mindful design through natural, age-old textures and organic shapes from different corners of the globe; attune to the stories they tell and how they enrich how we live today.
