The Touch: Spaces Designed for the Senses

Gestalten for Kit

It is often said that beauty lies in the eye of the beholder. In The Touch, Kinfolk and Norm Architects present an alternative: that good design is not only visually appealing—it engages all of the human senses. The Touch presents five essential building blocks of human-centric design—light, materiality, colour, nature and community—and welcomes you into over 25 spaces that exemplify how haptic design elements can provide a richer quality of living. This new collaboration between Nathan Williams of Kinfolk and Jonas Bjerre-Poulsen of Norm Architects offers a wealth of inspiration through stunning photography, philosophical essays, and practical tips from the minds of design industry leaders.
