The Touch

Spaces Designed for the Senses

It is often said that beauty lies in the eye of the beholder. In The Touch, Kinfolk and Norm Architects present an alternative: that good design is not only visually appealing—it engages all of the human senses.

Coming Back Soon

The Touch presents five essential building blocks of human-centric design—light, materiality, color, nature and community—and welcomes you into over 25 spaces that exemplify how haptic design elements can provide a richer quality of living. This new collaboration between Nathan Williams of Kinfolk and Jonas Bjerre-Poulsen of Norm Architects offers a wealth of inspiration through stunning photography, philosophical essays, and practical tips from the minds of design industry leaders.
