Issue #5: Evergreen Sindrom
Sindroms is a journal of monochrome states of mind, published in print annually. Curating its content based on specific colours, it investigates them across culture, and immerses its readers in the feelings and moods evoked by each colour.
The Evergreen Sindrom is a journey we embarked on before our world was enthralled by a pandemic that disrupted our ways of living. It felt like the perfect timing to explore green - a colour that breathes life; in all its forms - considering the moment in time our world found itself. Now, this issue feels more relevant than ever. These times call for industries to rethink processes and values, and for humans to rethink their approach to consumerism, their everyday lifestyle, and contribution to society. The world has slowed down, taking a step back to get a bird’s-eye view of the new reality, and the new behaviours we aim towards.
In this issue:
Green is, above all, the colour of life. In this edition, we explored life in all its forms, with a particular interest in the evergreen. What does prosperity mean now, how do we manage to continue growing, reinvent ourselves, and change our ways? What is evergreen design? Why is the human-nature relationship so vital? Is it important to talk to plants? When did we lose our connection to the natural world, and did we leave anything valuable behind? What is some of the evergreen wisdom that’s been passed down through generations? We explore all of this within 160 pages of conceptual, carefully-curated editorials, thought pieces and striking visual essays.
