We know all about beautiful homes and stunning architectural design, as well as luxurious cars that are gems of industrial design. Indeed, both can be works of art in their own right and are highly prized reflections of wealth and success, but what happens when the two worlds come together?
MANIFESTO appreciates the beauty of design—whether man-made or that formed by the hand of Mother Nature—and surely few things are more beautiful than the sight of majestic whales swimming through the ocean waves. Sadly many species of the cetacean were hunted to near extinction by man seeking whale blubber for oil and flesh for food before the international community instigated a ban on hunting these gentle giants of the sea. But whilst numbers of many species—particularly Sperm Whales—are now recovering, these creatures, which just like us are known to form close family ties, still face a threat from man in the form of thoughtlessly discarded plastic waste.
If there is a small place in heaven that smells like old books, ground coffee and freshly baked croissants it could well be just like Café con Libros in the heart of Málaga. It’s the kind of place you admire everyday as you walk past, with intentions of someday trying it out but never actually stepping through the door because it just looks a little too cool for its own good. Turns out, it really is that good!
The most beautifully styled homes deserve to be extensively captured with professional photography and represented in a stylish book. Quite often this takes the form of a coffee table book that contains drawings, floor plans, architectural photography and of course a narrative that explains the brief, inspiration and processes that have created the home.
