Travel, Winter 2020
The future of travel is as hazy and undefined as a sprawling steppe. But a collective awareness about how we move through the world is emerging, prioritising sustainability over convenience, intentionality over mindless consumption and offering new hope for our injured planet. For resort 2021, we take the latest collections to Portugal’s rocky coastline before skipping over the Med to the Istanbul Design Biennial. Justin E.H. Smith heads inland to Maison Ruinart in Reims, France, in search of David Shrigley while Medwell & Snow catch a train in the high Andes. Dubravka Ugrešić – our oracle-at-large – offers her view on our fractious present while Xavier de Maistre takes us on a voyage around his room.
