Kitchen Confidential



A kitchen is a fundamental part of the everyday. In this issue, we’re curious about how architects and designers conceptually approach this everyday space, particularly when it comes to designing their own.

‘Kitchen Confidential’ steps inside the homes and minds of Milanese architect Michele Pasini, Paris interior designer Stephanie Coutas and North American interior designers Jordan Carlyle and Marissa Corvino to see how their kitchen workspace reflects how they live. Beyond their homes, we see designers reveal their eye for detail across 12 standout global kitchen projects.

We’re invited into designer Isabelle Stanislas’ Parisian home, stylist Colin King’s Tribeca Loft, and Sydney designer Tamsin Johnson’s recently reimagined home to understand their personal approach to design in our ‘At Home With’ and ‘My Space’ series. Product designer Monica Calderon and architect Ezequiel Farca’s schoolhouse-turn-retreat in Merida, Mexico remind us of the importance of these everyday spaces for creative respite.

Designer Nikolai Kotlarczyk shares contemporary craftsmanship highlights from Stockholm Design Week, while our Detail pages spotlight handcrafted elements in the kitchen. Don’t forget this digital issue is designed for exploration beyond our pages – with links to our new podcast, film series and products on

I’m excited to announce I’ll also be reporting live on the ground at Milan Design Week and Salone del Mobile next month. Follow our on-the-ground coverage across the est social channels and our dedicated digital Milan issue, released on May 25.
