Design and creativity can be found in the most remote places, and in this issue, we explore the creative side of the most distant islands. Cass Valdovinos takes us to the enchanting island of Jeju to meet the haenyeo, the women of the sea. Architecture and nature coexist in harmony on the Japanese islands of Naoshima and Teshima, as captured by photographer James Rosen. In the Faroe Islands, a community of creatives—ceramists, knitters, artists—is giving new visions to tradition, as Amy McPherson reports. And west of Manhattan, Little Island is a remarkable design masterpiece waiting to be enjoyed.
