The Touch: Spaces Designed for the Senses

Kinfolk, Norm Architects, Gestalten

It is often said that beauty lies in the eye of the beholder. In The Touch, Kinfolk and Norm Architects present an alternative: that good design is not only visually appealing–it engages all of the human senses. What do a museum in Marrakech, a mid-century apartment in Berlin, and a graveyard north of Venice all have in common? In The Touch, creative collaborators Nathan Williams of Kinfolk and Jonas Bjerre-Poulsen of Norm Architects explore the idea that these inspiring spaces, and many more like them, share the five essential tenets of haptic, human-centric design: materiality, light, color, nature, and community. Revealing some of the world’s most sensual architecture and interiors, The Touch offers a wealth of inspiration through stunning photography, philosophical essays, and practical tips from the minds of design industry leaders.
