The New Era Magazine is an independent publication and digital platform dedicated to Scandinavian living, with topics such as Scandinavian interiors, design, arts and craft. We print on the world’s most climate friendly paper, Lessebo 2000, produced from totally chlorine free pulp by Lessebo paper – the first paper producer to receive the Cradle to Cradle Gold Award.
In issue number three, we investigate a world brimming with possibilities. We visit the enchanting studio of acclaimed artist Eva Lange, and we travel to an island where a house has been built in the midst of a forgotten fairy-tale garden. The design icon Pia Wallen takes us on an exclusive tour of her home, and architect Thomas Sandell invites us to his seaside home that measures just 13 square metres. ‘It’s a professional challenge to fit in as much as possible on a small scale’, he admits. ‘But you don’t have to live in a huge space to thrive.’ Elsewhere in the issue, we look at the tendencies shaping our future – from breaking away from the homogenisation of social media to the mass exodus from cities. ‘Designing is about understanding a situation’, says architect Pernilla Wåhlin Norén on our visit to her home built entirely of pine. ‘It’s about things like fresh air, sunlight, atmosphere and purpose – not about choosing products.’
