Openhouse Issue No.18
Stepping back to a simpler life
Inspired by the poem of Octavio Paz, La Vida Sencilla [The Simple Life], in this issue we dive into the stories of people who have taken a step back into their lives and practices with sterling results. Jaume Roig applies this idea to his art in pottering and painting. Iker Ochotorena homage to the vacuum in architecture. Chef Kobus van der Merwe cooks just with the local ingredients he finds in the fisher town of Paternoster, in South Africa, where his restaurant Wolfgat is located. Meanwhile, Casa Josephine Studio work-process leads Pablo and Iñigo to find the unpretentious perfection in design.
