“Uncertain times give birth to new cultural currents,” says designer and maker Fredrik Paulsen. “Now is an interesting time to re-evaluate how we think about objects.” Paulsen is one of the many designers, architects and creatives generously opening up their homes in The New Era Agenda. As a companion publication to the Scandinavian interiors magazine The New Era, this is small paperback is a special edition, fusing previously published articles with brand new content and ideas.
In the first volume of The New Era Agenda, we visit the legendary Paimio Sanatorium, designed by Aino and Alvar Aalto, and the home of interior architect Emanuele Stamuli. Creative force Ana Kraš invites us to her Paris home, we pay a visit to the artist Anton Alvarez and designer Ilse Crawford show us her new studio space. We discuss making with Philippe Malouin and new aesthetics with Formafantasma, and look at the undercurrents shaping the Nordic design scene.
