Potter Jono Smart traded in his successful career in the fast-paced world of advertising for the tactile experience of working with clay in his Glasgow studio. He credits the craft for more than just a career change, enabling him to recover from long-term depression. Here, he shares what he has learned from his experience as a potter — lessons that can easily be applied to any other profession, and even to other experiences in life.
Coffee shop, coffee roaster, and… architecture studio? It’s all in a day’s work for coffee-loving architect Ole Marius Skjærseth, whose combination of work and play has helped ignite a passionate coffee scene in one of Norway’s most beautiful cities.
A while ago we announced our partnership with the travel brand Attaché. Now, the 230-page book we’ve made together is available to buy. Expect a guidebook unlike any you’ve seen before, presented with the quality you’ve come to expect of Lagom.

When selling a product and running a brand in our current age, it’s very easy to get caught up in the idea that quantity trumps quality; that metrics are the only indicator of success; that likes and shares and retweets and clicks dictate what you put out into the world. We’d like to think that we’ve always maintained a healthy degree of scepticism on this subject, but in truth, when we sat down to take a good, hard look at what we’re doing with Lagom online, it’s apparent we’ve actually found ourselves sucked into that mentality to a degree. And we’ve decided to change that.
We spoke to Kate Stables of This Is The Kit — who at the end of 2017 released the breakthrough album ‘Moonshine Freeze’ — about how balance pervades every aspect of her life, from creative productivity, to home life, and social responsibility.
Today we’re announcing the Lagom patronage subscription: a way of showing your support for the publication that will help us continue to run the magazine in an honest, meaningful way. It’s open to anyone, but aimed at small studios looking to provide inspiration for their teams and get a little exposure in the process.
From the day we launched the magazine, we’ve aimed to keep shipping costs simple and fair by offering a flat fee of £4 to anywhere in the world. However, after some number-crunching, we’ve decided that it’s time to update our shipping costs.
