It is often said that beauty lies in the eye of the beholder. In The Touch, Kinfolk and Norm Architects present an alternative: that good design is not only visually appealing—it engages all of the human senses. What do a museum in Marrakech, a mid-century apartment in Berlin, and a graveyard north of Venice all have in common? In The Touch, creative collaborators Nathan Williams of Kinfolk and Jonas Bjerre-Poulsen of Norm Architects explore the idea that these inspiring spaces, and many more like them, share the five essential tenets of haptic, human-centric design: materiality, light, color, nature, and community. Revealing some of the world’s most sensual architecture and interiors, The Touch offers a wealth of inspiration through stunning photography, philosophical essays, and practical tips from the minds of design industry leaders.

Pump up the postmodernism! Instantly recognizable and never, ever boring, Memphis is one of the most important design movements of the 20th century. Founded by Italian architect and designer Ettore Sottsass, the Memphis Group put forward a visionary new approach to design, defining the '80s with its radical combinations of shapes, materials, and patterns. Serving up kooky design that's eclectic yet tightly curated, the Memphis look is exuberant, outrageous, and entertaining. Who doesn't want a bit of that? Spanning the worlds of interiors, furniture, fashion, and graphics, this new design book explores how the rule-breaking Memphis aesthetic continues to shape the modern creative scene. It started with Millennial Pink. Now the sweet shop colors, terrazzo floors, and curved cartoon shapes have been given a black outline and made graphic and cool. In More is More, editor Claire Bingham curates iconic Memphis designs and interiors alongside contemporary projects steeped in the effervescent Memphis mood. Step inside stunning, postmodernism-loving homes, studios, and hotels, capturing the Memphis spirit with their hello-there hues, vive la diff rence mindset, and flamboyant creativity - all hopefully, in the teeth of good taste. And along the way, hear from fashion-forward creatives embracing the Memphis look, as well as from Memphis Group founding member Peter Shire--a man who knows that stripes make you happy. Shire shares the stories behind the signature high-energy style and tells us how the '80s vibe has impacted his life and work. For both the leaders and followers of the New Wave, Memphis is more than a style. It's an attitude.

Humankind has always been fascinated by the magic of the ocean, its power and unpredictability. The open sea awakens a desire to set forth and sail, but also the urge to step back in awe and fear. Today, however, our oceans are more threatened than ever before. Worldwide plastic waste pollution and industrial fishing threaten the existence of countless ocean species. Global warming and the resulting climate change are leading to ever greater damage of the marine ecosystem. York Hovest, a photographer, adventurer, and author, has set himself the task of countering this development. The regular National Geographic contributor has joined “heroes of the seas”—scientists, activists, and visionaries—around the globe to explore and document the most inventive solutions and promising projects to save our oceans. In parallel to a rich documentary film, this book charts Hovest’s journey to help save the seas, capturing the beauty of the ocean as well as its extreme fragility. Hovest’s pictures span the azure blue seas of the South Seas to the cold waters around the Arctic Circle. They show whales, sharks, and colorful reef inhabitants in their natural habitat. In breathtaking splendor and scope, they remind us of the immense diversity and beauty of marine life and urge us to protect the abundant life forms for whom the ocean is home.

Water. The origin of life. The stroke of luck among cosmic coincidences. The chameleon of molecules that makes all the difference. Every living entity depends on its existence. Yet in and of itself, water appears rather modest. Colourless and tasteless, it is only in its environment that water comes to life, receiving colour through the reflection of the sky, and dynamism in its movement along rivers, over mountains, oceans and plains. Photographer Rudi Sebastian has dedicated his photographic life to water in all its forms. For the last few years he has travelled the globe to capture every imaginable facet of this essential substance in all its liquid, gaseous and solid forms. The result is an exquisite photographic book that presents an unprecedented spectrum of this miracle substance - from a pond to the endless expanse of the Pacific, from the ice of the polar-regions to the salt-encrusted lakes of the great deserts. Taking stylistic inspiration from Monet and classical modernism, Sebastian's images ripple with texture and ever-moving colours. His waterscapes are as vivid as the substance itself, a rich tribute to the planet's life force. Accompanying texts reveal the natural history and wonders of water on earth. Where did it come from? What role has it played in the emergence of life? This photographic journey takes us all over the truly blue planet to remind us that water is never just water but a whole universe of diversity and beauty. AUTHOR: Rudi Sebastian, born in 1960 in Russingen in the Rhineland- Palatinate state of Germany, dedicated himself to photography after many years primarily spent in the advertising industry. His main interest is water and landscape photography, influenced stylistically by Monet and classical modernism. He is particularly interested in the transfer of the space onto the surface, whereby what is shown often loses its point of reference and becomes an interface between the tangible and abstract. SELLING POINTS: A large-format photographic book presenting water in all its diversity and beauty With fascinating texts on the natural history of water on earth. Where does it come from? What role has it played in the emergence of life? An original gift for science buffs, nature lovers and photography enthusiasts alike 200 colour images

Mountains, one of nature's greatest masterpieces, in their rugged beauty, breathtaking views from the top, clear air, green pastures, mountain lakes and glaciers, have captivated mankind all along. Climbing mountains or just gazing at their majestic splendour causes us to slow down and contemplate, maybe even giving us a little serenity. Photographer Tim Hall beautifully captures the powerful solace of mountains in his images. He often chooses to shoot in dramatic weather, making his work and the photographed mountains look even more stunning and transcendent. The intention to strike an emotional or spiritual chord is evident in much of his landscape work, which is inspired by Rothko and Turner. The influence of painting in his work stems from his studies of Art History at Manchester University. Mountains - Beyond the Clouds presents the extensive Alpine mountain range, including famous landmarks such as the Mont Blanc, the Matter- horn and the Dolomites. Text in English German and French AUTHOR: Tim Hall is a British Fine Art Photographer, who special- izes in travel, landscape, and portraiture. His drive to see the world through the lens of a camera was inspired by the romance of 19th-century travellers and more recently, National Geographic photographers. The work is a lyrical response to the people and places that he has visited and shows his deep interest in the urban and natural world as well as the people who inhabit them. With over 20 years experience as a project-based photographer, his works are often conceived as a series, exhibited as a collective body, or bought as single pieces.

As a highly visual, astute, and rapid observer of the world around him, photographer Frank Ockenfels 3 takes in an abundance of images that serve as artistic stimuli for his creative mind. A process of collision, collusion, and collaboration is the genesis of his creativity, leading to the transformation of a photographic image into something else, a "re-presentation" of what he saw through the lens. It becomes a new form that communicates a new message, a new meaning; often conveying a more powerfully emotional visual statement. The works of Ockenfels 3 in this book provide a window into his visual thinking, the internal world of imagery and emotions in his mind. Subjected to ink, collage, or paint, the images are no longer just photographs of an individual, but become a more personal statement of who the artist is, of his psyche and as such, creative artistry in its purest form. The erotic, the sublime, and the violent collages are blended with portraiture that seamlessly complement each other. The photographic creations become tactile, bringing another dimension of sensory experience. FWO3 is propelled by a drive and curiosity to discover an image that is not yet known, at the same time he creates a visual language that speaks from the most primal and dark corners of his mind. He creates waking dreams, images that represent the darkest, least-illuminated aspects of his unconscious projected on the person he has photographed. He has the courage to go way beyond the expected and the obvious to the breaking of boundaries of traditional photography. Ockenfels 3 does not play it safe, and as a result, he is very effective at evoking from the viewer aspects of their own psyche of which they may or may not be aware. One cannot help but feel a resonance with the chaotic vibrancy of his mind. He leaves the imprint of his unconscious on the photographic image.
