Apartamento

An everyday life interiors bi-annual magazine. A place in print for people, not just objects.

Apartamento's first issue was released in April 2008 as a magazine interested in homes, living spaces and design solutions as opposed to houses, photo ops and design dictatorships. The magazine is a logical result of the post-materialist mind shift. People are bored with the ostentatious and ├╝ber-marketing. There is a real quest for identity in the midst of mass production and globalization, and that quest leads to what is personal, what is natural, what is real.

Winner of the D&AD Yellow Pencil under the 'Entire Magazine' category. This magazine is a must for people who love living spaces, good design, the smell of ink and the tactile beauty of a well printed magazine!
