Web imprint FreundevonFreunden had the chance to visit Ryan Willms, Editor-in-Chief of Inventory in his home in Vancouver. Inventory magazine and its retail stores focus on well-crafted products with a carefully considered selection of Japanese brands and products from the UK and Europe.
Berlin-based interview magazine Freunde von Freunde paid fashion director Stephen Mann a visit at his house in the north of London. Located in Haringey a suburb with a bad reputation, Stephen and his girlfriend Genesta renovated a gutted Victorian terrace from the ground on up. “We wanted something clean and not too fussy, somewhere we could relax without being distracted by too much clutter,” says Genesta. Stephen Mann works as fashion director of Inventory magazine and creative consultant for Arc’teryx and has also done projects for Missoni, Rapha and Norse Projects. In his very comfortable and personal home you´ll find a lot of furniture from Vitsoe like the 606 shelving system installed in the lounge, kitchen, spare room and bedroom as well as the 620 chairs, the 621 side tables and the 610 wall panel system. The imposing wooden kitchen unit, wardrobe and bathroom fittings were designed by Dean Edmonds for the couple. Everything in this home is beautifully arranged with a functional and understated approach.
