The November/December 2015 issue of Azure, now on newsstands, features six showstopping interiors from around the globe. Plus, your guide to the best interior design schools worldwide, and 40+ gifts ideas for the design-savvy.
Now on newsstands, the November/December 2015 issue takes you inside six top interiors launched this year – from the exquisite Hotel Adriatic in Croatia, which has been given a new life with contemporary art installations, to a one-room ceramics shop in Japan that turns a massive stack of 25,000 ordinary cups and saucers into a raised platform you can walk on. In Toronto, Castor takes a more industrial approach to a bridal salon with steel tubing and concrete; and in São Paulo, a building clad in movable wooden fins contains both a restaurant and recording studio.
Thinking of applying to interior design school? We look at eight programs around the world that provide the best all-round education, a strong networking base, and hands-on experience with state-of-the-art fabrication tools.
With the holiday season coming up, we’ve rounded up 40 of the best designer gifts of every size and type, including a collection of 3D-printed jewellery by University of Toronto graduates Mario Christian and Heng Tang, and a carbon-framed racing bike by De Rosa and Pininfarina.
Also: Inside the Alpine studio of architect Peter Zumthor and his mentorship program; a look at One Airport Square, the most energy-efficient office building in Ghana, by Italian architect Mario Cucinella; and Bruce Mau talks about e-readers and the 20th anniversary of the 1995 classic tome S, M, L, XL.
