Trends are often born through daring ideas. They are created by the visionaries who see the world differently and then create new paths the rest of us can walk on…
And this is what finally sparked the idea of our 2017 Field Report: to find, here at home and around the world, the visionaries, the icons and the experts who shape their unique, lasting and life-enhancing concepts for us to embrace through their work…
Our Field Report is not just the fleeting trends; they are about the quality and perfection; about bringing back old traditional skills and craftsmanship and getting back to the root of it all. They are about influencing our lives, making them better and more meaningful, and certainly much more beautiful.
