Made by MENDOAbout the books
Who will recognize a great book better than a bookstore? A bookstore run by graphic designers. Here’s why: at MENDO we get market feedback seven days a week, we are blessed to be surrounded by a bunch of talented, inspiring people – photographers, writers and publishers – and after being a bookstore for more than 15 years, we can easily say we know what book aficionados are looking for. Don’t you agree that initiating, creating and realizing jaw-dropping books now, only comes natural?
A MENDO publication is a well-designed book with visually stunning creative content, browsed by people to be amazed and inspired. The subject-matter is one of our pre-defined curated categories, fashion, photography, interior, sport, lifestyle, food and traveling. In general, a MENDO book is a piece of furniture in itself.
Making Space celebrates Studio Modijefsky’s first decade designing spaces and the people that bring them to life. Not just the designers who work in the studio or the artists and makers they collaborate with, but the visitors who fill these spaces with their energy.
For this book, Studio Modijefsky wanted to show their interiors in a documentary photography style through the lens of Maeve Stam, that show these places as they are in use. The space becomes the property of the guests, visitors and staff who fill it. They make each and every part of it their own: somewhere they will laugh, try new food, meet friends, lovers and make new memories.
Making space gives a twofold insight into Studio Modijefsky: the studio’s design philosophy and the process of creation before the project is delivered; and the life that starts as soon as these interiors are inhabited.
