"Currents: Contemporary Pacific Northwest Design" explores the design boom in the Pacific Northwest, the fundamental principles to this creative field and over 40 remarkable makers and designers behind this extraordinary area of design. Set against striking photography, highlighting the best of the PNW design, the book also navigates the landscape and settings which inspires this area of design.
Curated by IDS Vancouver Director Jody Phillips, designed by Copenhagen-based art director Daniel Zachrisson, and published by Swedish publishing house New Heroes & Pioneers, this book is the perfect gift for the design lovers in your life.
In early 2013, the New Heroes & Pioneers publishing house – based in Malmö, Sweden – was little more than the kernel of an idea in the team's minds. Their plan was to develop and publish a range of coffee table books containing a smart, interesting and eclectic mixture of art, culture and fashion. What made this concept unique, was that they were, right from the beginning, dedicated to being a vehicle for discovering and promoting new and unknown artists whose singular styles and perspectives make them stand out. The concepts of ‘making human connections’ and ‘giving back’ were woven into the fabric of the corporate culture and have become a clear and conscious part of every project since the company’s inception.
