THE SHAPE OF LIGHT
— ARK X GUBI

ADVERTORIAL

In collaboration with Gubi, and to celebrate the brand’s new lighting collections, Ark Journal’s creative team produced a photo essay inspired by the Californian mid-century modern architectural style. It’s an homage to a period that embraced both art and craft, a time of eclecticism and optimism that was defined by the transition from modernism, an era that was both forward-thinking and outward-looking. It was an epoch suffused with a desire to experiment and with a curiosity about other people’s cultures, and particularly folk art. A deep concern for comfort and nourishing of the spirit resulted in natural materials, ceramic and organic sculptures combined with the cosiness of low-level furniture.
