The first issue of the magazine published by Cosa Mentale revolves around the theme of “hypercomfort”, as critically dissected and interpreted by Paris-based studio Bruther and Laurent Stalder, professor of architecture history at ETH Zurich. Keeping the body in its comfort zone is the secret watchword of our daily environment. As soon as a door is crossed, as soon as an interior is roamed, the environment must be controlled, air conditioned, sanitised. This invisible normalisation is not merely an infra-spatial issue. From comfort to conformism, even conformation, there is only one step. The issue explores how this process is already insidiously changing some of our behaviours.

64 p, ills bw, 23 x 30 cm, pb, French/English
