When we design for our urban island aesthetic, we think about the city girl whose lifestyle is shaped by her own paradise. And we don’t necessarily mean “island” or “paradise” in the literal sense. We mean someone’s happy place: the one thing or place that makes you feel the most alive and like yourself. Sometimes my island is the time I take to work on a new piece or design. Or when I go on a run. When life feels stagnant or gets heavy or stressful, it’s what you do or where you go for that moment of interruption, that much-needed escape to shake things up. Like photographing a sunset.
As you can imagine, sunsets are kind of a thing in Hawaii, and on Maui they’re one-of-a-kind. Like fingerprints, no two are ever the same. It’s an extraordinary thing to actually see people slow down and look up for once to watch the sun set before them (that is, until they all look back down to pick up their phones and start posting away).
So even city folks have their islands too. What’s yours? Let us know by leaving a comment below.
