Nendo

There are few design studios worldwide that can deliver projects of such consistently high quality as the Japanese studio Nendo. Expertly melding architecture and interior, product, and graphic design with sculpture and installation, Nendo’s work is both impressively clear and intriguingly sophisticated. The functionality and unobtrusiveness of their projects is in line with established Japanese design traditions, yet their lightheartedness and humor is also inspired by the country’s pop culture.

Less and More

This book elucidates the philosophy of Dieter Rams that is best summed up in the ten rules of design that he created more than thirty years ago. Sometimes referred to as “the ten commandments,” they are just as relevant today: Good design is innovative. Good design makes a product useful. Good design is aesthetic. Good design helps a product to be understood. Good design is unobtrusive. Good design is honest. Good design is durable. Good design is consistent to the last detail. Good design is environmentally friendly. Good design is as little design as possible.

Crafted Meat

Bewusster Genuss und das Verlangen nach besserer Qualität geben Anlass, das traditionelle Metzgerhandwerk neu zu beleben. Die Aktivisten dieser Bewegung interessieren sich dabei nicht nur für Steaks. Erfahrene Züchter bewahren alte Fleischrassen, während kreative junge Köche und Metzger, wie schon Generationen vor uns, alles verwerten, was das Tier liefert – „von der Schnauze zum Schwanz“. So entstehen aus erstklassigen Zutaten meisterhaft hergestellte Würste, Pasteten und andere fast vergessene regionale Spezialitäten.
