News from Kinfolk


Kinfolk have introduced some exciting new changes including updates to their already beautiful magazine, a new website and gallery space. As an avid fan I was thrilled to receive the press release with details of the news and redesign, and I couldn't wait for my copy of Kinfolk Twenty-Two to arrive in the mail. Yesterday it turned up and right away I noticed the larger size. Flicking through the pages I was immediately taken with the elegant new layout which features a new mix of papers, formats, features and sections, including a special themed section in each issue. With a goal to to create a more immersive and dynamic reading experience, Kinfolk have certainly delivered.

Alex Hunting, a London-based award-winning art director and Kinfolk design director  gives further insight into the redesign...

“Kinfolk is an iconic and beloved title, and this redesign looks to evolve its aesthetic while retaining the magazine’s sensitive approach to photographic art direction. The new larger size and 12-column grid allow for more flexibility within the layouts and help vary the pace throughout the magazine. We’ve also introduced a coated paper for the feature section to celebrate the exceptional longer form photographic pieces"

A Work Special, Kinfolk Twenty-Two revisits one of their most popular subjects: work and the entrepreneurial spirit. Alongside a regular mix of thoughtful lifestyle content, they dedicate the pages of the new section to finding out what makes a job meaningful and why qualities such as ambition, passion and motivation can lead to a balanced quality of life.

Captivated from cover to cover I also loved reading about Ben Gorham, the Swedish perfumer and founder of Byredo, and a day in Copenhagen with fashion designer Stine Goya. Both so inspiring, I've long admired their achievements, as well as their homes and interior style! There's also a visit to the London home and studio of former fashion designer Nicole Farhi. Here's a peek at a few more pages. has relaunched with a dynamic new design by London agency Six, and a daily roster of exciting, original content. A natural extension of the print magazine, the new also offers an immersive reading experience, delving even deeper into the art of living and how life can be individually shaped and inhabited.

Along with a selection of free-to-view stories from the print magazine, Kinfolk are producing a daily stream of timely and diverse content just for the web: event coverage and travel tips, as well as intimate interviews, home tours, thought-provoking essays, conceptual photo essays and more.

Last but by no means least, here is a look inside the beautiful new Kinfolk Gallery designed by Norm Architects. Located in the heart of Copenhagen, the gallery is a collaborative and multifunctional space where friends and partners come together to share ideas and showcase their work. Co-created in partnership with some of the world’s leading interiors brands, the Kinfolk Gallery is available to host a variety of events, such as art exhibitions, pop-up shops, guest lectures, fashion shows, workshops, dinner gatherings and photo shoots. Understated elegance at its best, I love the neutral palette and soft textures, clean lines and warm wood elements. How incredible it would be to attend an event here in Copenhagen!
