    Going Under

    Shovel to dirt, we head underground to dig up some of the latest innovations in subterranean construction. We offer information on The Lowline, an underground park set to open in N.Y.C., and expand on international projects taking place in Pushing the Boundaries of Underground Construction.

    We wander to Copenhagen to visit Space10, IKEA’s innovation hub, and Toulouse to the Bauhaus exhibition with Thonet, considered a more innovative version of IKEA well before its time; don’t miss our exclusive interview with Thonet that offers advice. This issue kickstarts our “In Time” collection where we encounter some of the most reputable designers and architects located in specific regions. We begin in the south of France.

    We take you to Frankfurt for Ambiente, London to visit the Garden Bridge, Stockholm for the New Way Out exhibition and more. From Europe to South America, we cover Brazil’s most promising and important furniture fair Movelsul and there’s a lot of young talent worth hearing about.

    **Respects to Zaha Hadid, whose much-beloved works will continue to honor her name.

    **Respects to Gillis Lundgren, the designer of IKEA’s Billy bookcase (1978), who has passed away at age 86.
