The New Era Magazine is a beautifully crafted print publication focusing on Scandinavian interiors, design, art and craft. With our base and area of expertise firmly in Scandinavia, we meet architects, interior designers, urban farmers, artists and craftspeople who contribute to our visual and material culture. We invite our readers to inspiring homes and spaces in the Nordics, while at the same time discussing topics relating to how we live in this moment of time. The New Era Magazine is a quarterly magazine published four times a year.
In the second issue, we visit the couple behind acclaimed interior architecture firm Halleroed at their forest hideaway, and we visit a 17th-century home and garden where time has stood still. Celebrated fashion designer Diana Orving creates a textile art installation in an empty museum exclusively for us, and we spend some time in the beautiful, sparse home of glass maestro Ingegerd Råman. ‘We are not easily tempted to buy things’, she says about her and her husband’s decision to live with the bare minimum of objects. ‘I will defend the empty space.’ Elsewhere in the issue, we discuss the profound effects of the built environment on our wellbeing. ‘I want to be part of a cultural movement that recalibrates what matters in society and in life’, says Danish chef Fredrik Bille Brahe in Hugo Macdonald’s article on reconnecting with our roots. ‘I think courage to be local is important.’ Born at a time of change, our hope is to inspire new ideas on the subject of living well. It is time to welcome a new era.
