gestalten continues to actively reimagine the way in which we approach publishing. With our extensive range of titles, we not only seek to enhance and to enrich our reader’s lives, but to continually engage with the surrounding creative landscape.

Our origin story began with a focus on the aesthetic, particularly that of graphic design and, over the last two decades, the scope of both our content and our expertise has widened. Today, using a myriad of observations on culture, people, art, and other intimate inspirational informants, we document and anticipate vital movements in architecture, visual culture, design & fashion, escapism, food & beverages, travel, and contemporary art.

WE LOVE IT BECAUSE The Berlin-based publishing house gestalten not only showcases trends in architecture and design with its books, but the fringes of car and motorcycle culture and the avant-garde of mobility also have a permanent spot on the programme.
