The Outsiders

New Outdoor Creativity
Posted by Gestalten—03/2014

Whether hiking through the mountains, paddling on a silent lake, or simply spending a night in a tent far away from civilization, more and more of us are turning to the great outdoors for a touch of adventure. Our new book The Outsiders captures the refreshing ethos of today’s smartly successful and design-literate outdoor entrepreneurs. It also features interviews with key players from across the outdoor sector.

Better, hipper, lighter, and sturdier—the products and projects in this book are more radical than ever before! Watch our trailer to get a preview of the the refreshingly modern images of globetrotters and adventurers captured in The Outsiders.
