Lagom #4

With stories from Singapore to Brooklyn, South Africa to Greenland, issue four is our most global yet. If this issue has a theme, it would be the idea of breathing new life into the old — whether that’s keeping traditions alive in our northernmost stop of Greenland, bringing silent film scoring into the 21st century, transforming a derelict building into a thriving community space in Belgrade, or shipping rum by wind-powered tall ship across the Atlantic.

One of the most rewarding parts of creating a printed magazine is that we get to see it appearing in stockists all over the world.

Artist Spotlight: Hilla Shamia

Tel Aviv-based artist Hilla Shamia’s unique furniture collection is one of contrasts: combining wood and aluminium, she preserves the natural imperfections of the wood and the industrial precision of the aluminium. Here she explains the process and thought behind her work.


Barbara Ana Gomez’s illustrated song lyrics

Illustrators can find inspiration in just about anything, but for Barbara Ana Gomez, that inspiration stems from her favourite songs.


Charlie Mancini in Lagom #4

Portuguese musician Pedro Marques Pereira has an alter-ego: performing music to accompany silent films in front of a live audience, he becomes Charlie Mancini — a colourful character who probably doesn’t even go to bed without wearing his trademark hat.


Lagom #4 is on its way

Our fourth issue will be out in just under two weeks


Of Woodstock

We all want to be a bit more ethical when it comes to everyday items, and thankfully, more and more independent businesses are popping up, sourcing sustainable, cruelty-free materials to create beautiful products that are not only eco-friendly but packed full of quality too.



Craig Stennett, AKA Asusu, didn’t grow up in a musical house. Whilst most of us were busy with taking up the recorder or begrudgingly heading out to a weekly piano lesson, Stennett was messing around with samples and synths.
