The inaugural issue of THE SYBARITE considered an eastern influence on the spheres of luxury, design and architecture. Published in celebration of the Chinese year of the Rooster and translated into Mandarin, to reflect Sybarite’s portfolio of work in China.

I worked across editorial strategy, project management and activation in my role as Managing Editor of THE SYBARITE.
Contributors: Henrietta Thompson, editor-at-large at Wallpaper* magazine, on UK design as an export; Beijing Design Week’s Beatrice Leanza on why the future of architecture in China is about thinking small; and V&A curator Leanne Wierzba questioning the meaning of luxury.
Channels: Print: 1000 copies distributed to Sybarite contacts internationally and a small quantity sent to independent retailers in London: magCulture, Artwords, Magma and Liberia.
Digital: Microsite, emailer to contact list and social activation instagram / twitter / linked in
Press: Featured in LS:N Global “a new project by architecture studio Sybarite highlights the company’s multifaceted practice through the eyes of a fictional editor. ‘Through James Sybarite we communicate with our clients in a unique way that sets us apart from typical architectural practices and demonstrates our broad range of skills, including design, illustration and editorial,’ Simon Mitchell tells LS:N Global.
