An exploration of a new generation of hotels, guesthouses, and hospitality venues that have traded the bustle of cities for the peace of remote and regional areas.
A thoughtful guide to a new kind of travel, Slow Escapes explores hotels, guesthouses, and hospitality venues that are reinvigorating rural areas by fostering meaningful connections between people and place.
Drawing upon principles of the slow movement, these places embrace ideas of community, sustainability, and seasonality, and are involved in the preservation of heritage, culture, and tradition.
From an 18th-century sheep farm reimagined as a guest house in the far north of Iceland to a new-age finca in the heart of Andalusia; from a homestead-turned-farm-and-fermentory in the Catskills to the Fogo Island Inn, a social enterprise and hotel set on an island off an island in the North Atlantic; read the stories behind the places that are changing the way we vacation—for the better.
Book publishing is actively and constantly reimagined by Gestalten. An extensive range of titles that not only enriches the reader's life, but also promotes ongoing engagement with the surrounding creative landscape.
Gestalten’s origin story began with a focus on the aesthetic, particularly that of graphic design and, over the last two decades, the scope of both its content and its expertise has widened.
Today, using a myriad of observations of culture, people, art, and other intimate, inspirational informants, Gestalten documents and anticipates vital movements in architecture, visual culture, design & fashion, escapism, food & beverages, travel, and contemporary art.
