In an interesting feature from their archives, Freunde von Freunden delve into the world of Berlin-based sportswear designer, Johanna F. Schneider. Having worked at ACRONYM and created her own NikeLab collection earlier this year, it's clear that she has a strong vision and a great aesthetic. The story offers a look at her home, studio and exercise regime, while Zsuzsanna Toth's interview probes deeper into the designer's process and perspective.

There are plenty of interviews on Freunde von Freunden where metropolises such as New York, Paris or London play a central role, but for me some of the most interesting insights can be found in the places I've never visited. That's certainly the case with this look at Athens, home of Kennedy magazine publisher, photographer and DJ, Chris Kontos, which offers a glimpse into the personality of one of Greece's up-and-coming creatives, alongside some of his usual haunts.

Freunde von Freunden: Sayori and Toyotsugu Wada


Words

The father/daughter duo of architect and surfer, Toyotsugu, and illustrator and music lover, Sayori Wada, were recently the subjects of a Freunde von Freunden interview profiling their incredible light-filled, beach-inspired home and providing insight into their daily lives. The former certainly seems a lot closer to an idealized surf home than the cramped living spaces the Japanese metropolis is sometimes known for, making for a refreshing glimpse of enviable Tokyo living.

Architectural photographer Florian Holzherr is based in Munich but has done much of his work in the US for Donald Judd and James Turrell. Freunde von Freunden take us inside his garden studio, designed by architect Andreas Meck; the 44-year-old's minimal workspace is filled with natural light and USM furniture, both more than welcome in any studio.

—01. Published twice a year.

Words

Openhouse is a new magazine rooted in the idea of private spaces functioning in some public way. Whether it be a studio, gallery or showroom, often in a house or apartment – or really any combination thereof. Its second issue features insightful glimpses into the Freunde von Freunden Apartment in Berlin and Philip Johnson’s Glass House in Connecticut, as well as several other cleanly and brightly photographed offices and homes that are utilized for intriguing purposes. With the magazine turning up in more shops, it's a publication to keep an eye out for.

Our editor-in-chief, Ryan Willms, was recently profiled on the beautifully exhibited interiors website, Freunde von Freunden. As part of an ongoing series with Vitra, the feature showcases Willms’ home, which reflects a cohesive sense of design that utilizes a number of their pieces alongside Alvar Aalto designed Artek furniture, Vitsoe 606 shelving, and a variety of other items that are personal to him. On top of the intimate view of his home, he also offers a glimpse into some his favourite activities and places to visit in Vancouver.
