TOFINO, CANADA: Don’t you feel like spending more and more time outside in nature? A walk off the paths in the woods, hiking up a mountain in a far away country or swimming in a chilly lake during a full moon summer night? If so, get the book THE OUTSIDERS by Gestalten Publishing, which showcases the outlook and passions of the new creative scene that has emerged and draws inspiration from the outdoors. It is an excellent guide to this development along with its original products, brands, and ideas. The interviews with key players from the outdoor sector give you great information and inspire you to spend lots of time outside this summer. At the same time the book is always likeable with the occasional romantic or ironic wink.
Send me your favourite outdoor location to takepart@irmasworld and win the book.
My favorite spot is CLAYOQUOT in Tofino, Canada. Have a look at wildretreat.com. This remote wilderness resort is an opulent tented camp with super-soft beds and hot tubs. You can go whale watching, do archery or go white-water rafting. There is also an on-site spa, so you can slip off for a massage after a day of watching Orcas or just hiking through the woods.
Gestalten presents a themed product showcase that captures the evolving ethos of today’s outdoor scene. Opening this Thursday, 22 May at Gestalten Space, Berlin they’ll bring the outdoors indoors and gear you up for the upcoming summer season.
