Issue 96, out now.

The February/March issue of Urbis has hit the shelves!

In this issue, we explore the topic of ‘luxury’. True, the definition of luxury when it comes to design and architecture, like that of any aesthetic pursuit, is incredibly subjective. But we’ve searched far and wide for what we believe are some of the many threads of colour, art, materials and craft that are transforming the concept into something representative of its ethical role and undeniable vibrance. 

The pages are filled with colourful interiors that exude a sense of luxury in a fun and playful way, covetable items that redefine our perception of luxury, and ideas for how to use art to create sumptuous spaces. 

We visit houses from Brazil to Hawke’s Bay, China to Auckland, and even an impressive seaside home in the exclusive El Dorado Beach in sunny Puerto Rico. We also test drive the latest Maserati, Porsche, BMW and Volkswagen to uncover what makes these cars luxurious and groundbreaking. 

This, plus a styled photo shoot in New York, a compendium of the arts and homewares that are turning heads around the globe and much, much more in the latest issue of Urbis!
