While living green means making healthier choices for ourselves and for the planet, living “G” is about so much more. As the definitive voice for the modern urban human, the latest collaboration of G Living and BPM magazine takes you up close and personal to the latest in sustainable architecture and brings you functional, sleek and affordable gadgets that will take you beyond the ever-growing edge of off-the-grid living. And that’s only on the first few pages.
It’s beyond in-your-face. It’s in your life. And it’s within your grasp.
For example, did you know there was a company in Venice, California that produces ecologically based sports gear? Arbor Sports rocks everything from the waves to the slopes with natural materials like sustainable bamboo and koa. Not only do they manufacture the hippest, cleanest looking boards and accessories, they guarantee that your inward heelflip will have a conscience.
Ditto for the pied piper of shock fashion, Jonathan JJ Hudson, who, under the curiously right-to-left inspired moniker Noki (read it backwards) is cutting from his own unique brand of cloth and making his pieces veritable works of art while making his own profound statement against mass production. One-of a-kind never looked this good.
But that’s just the tip of the iceberg we’re all trying to keep from melting. Can’t make it to the Museum of Modern Art’s upcoming pre-fab exhibition? No worries. BPM G brings you an amazing preview. Home delivery takes on a whole meaning when the delivery is actually a home. Call it prefab at its most fab.
And just because Christmas is a faded memory doesn’t mean the act of giving is on hold until next December. Part philanthropy, part promotion, Ingenious Toronto ad firm TAXI is helping to keep Canada’s homeless not only warm but in style this winter with their 15 Below Jacket.
Lastly, if you can’t picture a car that could run the Roadster off the road, you haven’t seen the Volkswagen Viseo. The look of this unexpected electric three-seater was based on the Calatravian motto of “dynamic balance”. Don’t know what that means? Check out our exclusive interview with Marc Kirsch, the German designer who drives the point home in more ways than one.
Taking a walk on the “G” side is all about making your own choices about the way you live your life. Healthy and functional as stand-alones don’t cut it. It’s gotta have style. Substance. Sexiness. Which is why we’re stoked to present the latest issue of BPM G.
