The hinter newsletter has teleported to this space, where it calls itself “The hinter Planet”. A monthly publication on culture, travel, sustainability and some more. A curation by hinter that takes you traveling to inspiring corners of the digital world with a mission of catalyzing ideas for a "Solarpunk" future. Keep reading to know where we are heading.
We’ve gone traveling… through creative and inspiring corners of the digital world with a mission of catalyzing ideas for a "Solarpunk" future. Come away with us on our first trip.
Don’t know what Solarpunk is? In short; Cyberpunk, as exemplified by The Matrix or Mad Max (don’t get us wrong, we love those movies), often feature a dystopian future with advanced technology and societal decay, but basically we “f*** it up”, whereas Solarpunk, envisions an optimistic, sustainable future powered by renewable energy, emphasizing harmony with nature. It's like planting a tree while rocking a pair of solar-powered shades, fueled by the belief that our future can be brighter. As a hospitality company at its core, we are trying to head there, or at least we’ll give it a shot, and while we are at it, we hope to inspire you on your journey. The hinter Planet will be an exploration shared with our community on traveling, design, art, culture, wellbeing, and nature. All somehow interconnected into slow living and doing things right. The future is bright.

spaces to swoon over
minimal interior dreamin’
We’ve said it before and we’ll say it again, minimalist spaces are at no loss of warmth if done right. @aaroninteriors shares snippets of his home on instagram and it warms our souls right up. Less is more, but it matters how that less is done. When done right, with warm neutrals, the right lighting, intentional textures and of course *soul* - a minimal space comes to life.
illustrations that educate and calm the soul
Yan Cacchione and his company Motamo are creating a community dedicated to living a slow life and achieving the highest sense of self-awareness so that every moment feels full and worth cherishing. Through journaling journeys and creative illustrations, Motamo spikes that daily dose of “life is good” into our lives.
the philosophy behind it all
We produced this video more than 2 years ago together with our talented friend Thish Para; We might have changed a thing or two, and added then some more, but the core of it all is still there. Here’s a refresher.
