Hoorn was the original name given to the cape that marks the northern boundary of the Drake Passage in the south seas – known today as Cape Horn. In 1616, it was discovered by two Dutch seafarers, Le Maire and Schouten, who were looking for a new route that could link Europe with the Spice Islands.

Hoorn is a celebration of the flâneur spirit of all travelers in the world. It is the tangible expression of memorable memories, exotic places, transcendent moments and emblematic personalities. Hoorn appeals to the mystic of the walker with a constant evocation of the memories that bring to the present day a complicit and silent smile, where art and life merge, inseparable, through details, nuances, contrasts and subtle traces of past adventures.

For my part, I travel not to go anywhere, but to go. I travel for travel’s sake. The great affair is to move…

Robert Louis Stevenson

OUR BEGINNINGS

Hoorn was born from Editorial Südpol, the only Argentine publishing house specializing in travel literature. All our images are unique and have been specially commissioned to artists and illustrators, in order to keep our own creative essence alive. Our catalog is inspired by the golden age of travel and the transatlantic ships, in the vestiges of the last dandies and in those explorers who were still looking to spot remote territories. Hoorn Vintage was founded following this spirit, and it´s an art house where we produce, in a careful way, memorabilia and unique objects that evoke other times.

PATAGONIA, TIERRA DEL FUEGO and ANTARCTICA

Artist: Born in the outskirts of Paris, Marine Israel was involved in different art projects from an early age. She made Tierra del Fuego her home in 2012 and works as a guide in the region. In this series, she combined the vintage style of the 1930s posters of Mont Blanc, Chamonix with some modern influences. Each design was originally hand painted on canvas.
