For the winter edition, Kinfolk explores the relationship between community and design. How can design strengthen bonds with our families, friends and neighbors? And how can good design improve our quality of life? Design is about the way an object or idea speaks to an audience. But good design not only gets its message across—it also engages us in a conversation. The voices in this issue demonstrate that there’s no set of rules that govern what constitutes “good design.” Form doesn’t have to follow function, function doesn’t have to follow form—in fact, there shouldn’t be any following at all.
Readers explore what is essential in their lives by determining what needs to be pared back in order to live more simply and more fully.
