The sixth issue (autumn/winter 2021) of the Danish magazine Ark Journal explores the many changes of our time and our growing awareness of the effects of everything we create and manufacture. The issue focuses especially on creators, craftsmanship, making, and their significance in the world of design. Ark Journal has 240 pages and four different cover options.
- We have dedicated Volume VI to the bright minds and talents who have captivated and inspired us in a time of flux and we take our lead from thoughtful designers, artists, architects, and curators with strong views and priorities.
- A leading voice is the designer, creative director and author Ilse Crawford, whose humanistic approach to design fosters wellbeing. Hers is a simple mission to put human needs and desires at the heart of her work.
- Look out for insightful reflections from Jonny Johansson, the mastermind behind Acne Studios, artist Mark Manders, Amaryllis Jacobs of gallery Maniera, architect-designer couple Malene Hvidt and Nikolaj Lorentz Mentze, and architect/essayist Justine Bell.
- We draw special attention to creators, and their different perspectives on craftsmanship and making. We believe that the revival of craft and the placing of a higher value on the act of making will be important in the future.
