There are architectures and design pieces whose value we often underestimate, which we look at casually or do not see at all, but which constitute real icons.
The Modernis explores this very kind of architecture and looks with curiosity at modern design, considers recent history as a mature time of culture, creativity and innovation, worthy of recognition.
The Modernist looks behind the scenes of streets and skyscrapers, celebrating everything from markets to residential buildings to highways.
The magazine offers unique perspectives on 20th-century architecture and design, with its pages filled with bus stops, back streets and concrete.

ISSUE 38 - THE KITCHEN
The kitchen is the heart of the home and undoubtedly this old cliché has acquired a new truth in the last few months. Stuck in the house, we started cooking more than usual, starting those ambitious culinary projects that the normal working week would not normally allow. Naturally leavened appetizers, vegetable pickling, fruit fermentation, baking of cakes.
This issue of The Modernist focuses on the kitchen, a room where modernist design comes to life perhaps more than any other. In this issue, in particular, the timeless, the fact to last, is exalted. The Bialetti Moka Pot, Leach Pottery, Cornishware, the Braun coffee grinder, a 1960s casserole from Elizabeth David Ltd, Falcon enameled plates and bowls, the Selton coffee maker.
It also deals with the theme of craftsmanship and handmade, often perceived as problematic, and how traditional and modern collided in mid-century Irish cuisine.
And again, we explore the iconic Frankfurt kitchen, at the base of all modular kitchens, a collection of beer coasters, the ways in which modernism facilitates breakfast, the fastest meal of the day.
So let's put on a kettle, grab a Cesca chair and spend some time in the modernist kitchen.
