Issue No. 1 Transformation

EDITOR'S Note

Previous image Next image

A while back, when we started a conversation about publishing our next book, we quickly came to the conclusion that we weren’t all that interested in creating another monograph. The idea of producing a historical document chronicling project after project seemed rather…well, dull. We soon realized we were far more interested in exploring where our thinking is and what is inspiring today, what is influencing the future—a document of inspirations.

This is the same curiosity that feeds our relationships, work, and travels and that inspired the stories found in these pages. We are fascinated by how culture and society are always changing and what that means to the built environment; even within the most mundane experiences, how do we look beyond the obvious with a sense of wonderment? How can we affect change and support social causes? The idea of transformation grew into an obvious theme for this first edition and, in a larger way, our lives—at the risk of sounding too lofty. Creating the “new” for as long as we have been in business has often been about change.

With the purpose of explaining how we think, and what we are thinking at this moment in time, we have brought together people and ideas that are important to us, knitting together a selection of artists, artisans, visionaries, and thinkers sharing their thoughts, images, and musings. We see this first issue as the beginning of a bi-annual, hardcover magazine in which we will share our world.

We’ve often been told we shouldn’t do things. We were told we shouldn’t branch into publishing, and we were told we shouldn’t design furniture. In fact, we were both told way back in high school that interior design was not a viable career choice. Imagine if we hadn’t been willing to take a risk then. We’re really happy we did.

Since we started Yabu Pushelberg over 35 years ago, we’ve always approached problems and challenges with the idea that anything is possible with the right people and with an open frame of mind. We’ve always been all about the possibilities. Here, we’ve brought together an amazing, inspiring, international group of smart, creative minds who share that vision. Thank you to each of them!

We hope you like it.
