Review from @magfanatic:
Inspiring us to make the most of our homes.
This issue of Apartamento was not produced during the lockdown, but just before. It captures the time of "normality" we were all used to then and to some extent, it is refreshing to read about other things than life under lockdown, even though that is just as important. After all, Apartamento is an interiors magazine and since most of us are confined to our homes at the moment, there is plenty of inspiration to be taken from its pages. Be it a candid conversation with the legendary landscape architect, artist, and graphic designer #BarbaraStauffacherSolomon,
photographer @irishumm documenting her family's summer house on the lake and writes what can only be described as a love letter to this place or interview with @garycard artist and star set designer to the likes of @balenciaga @commedesgarcons or @timwalkerfans as he talks about his work and the influence of the nostalgia of his childhood mixed with a hint of sinister darkness.
Elsewhere, Apartamento offers a look at the industrial and minimalist Berlin home of architect @samchermayeff, son of legendary graphic designer #IvanChermayeff and grandson of one of the major personalities of modernist architecture #SergeChermayeff and the provocative Catalan artist Amelia Riera who passed away last year aged 91 was interviewed in her home that doubled as her studio where she was born and where she eventually also died.
