Below are five companies producing stunning work that follow these core values, made by people who believe in making the world a more beautiful place.
A Seattle-based design and architecture firm, Olson Kundig creates masterpieces around the world. Most of their work consists of creating houses and cabins for art collectors and other creative types.
Normally settled in scenic areas, the shelters are built to reflect and coexist with the surrounding nature. While the exteriors of the houses are beautiful, the interior is where the magic comes together. Every detail has a purpose.
When Matt Parker founded Album Surf in San Clemente, CA, his goal was to create innovative, one-of-a-kind handmade surfboards that embodied every element of great design.
His company is transforming the concept of what modern surfcraft is by introducing groundbreaking shapes with stunning artwork.
Before Album, the surf industry was plagued by factory-produced boards with homogenous shapes and boring color schemes. As Parker puts it himself, “fun, speed, [and] magic,” are the main influences in his design. For how beautiful the ocean and beach are, it just makes sense to be riding a beautiful board, too.

Both involve a closeness with the earth that you are rapidly exploring, whether that’s on water or land.
Arjan van den Boom, founder of Dutch company IWC Motorcycles, is creating bold yet minimalistic two-wheeled machines to redefine how you get around the world.
The amount of detail in his builds speak for themselves.
The “café racer” style he works with with describes these types of bikes that are aesthetically pleasing and minimal, perfect for zipping around the city in style to grab a cup of coffee and enjoy the simpler things in life.
