The Five at Five: Jack Lewis
20 Oct 2022
From hidden gems to places to people-watch, from bookshops to beauty spots – here is some inspiration, celebrating the independents in our local neighbourhoods around the world.
Founded by Jack Lewis, Sowvital was born out of a love for nurturing house plants and a curiosity for understanding how the right nutrients could help them thrive. What started as blending fertiliser formulations at home and sharing them with friends became Sowvital’s ritualistic and scientifically-driven philosophy. Jack left a promising career in law to follow his twin passions of entrepreneurship and plants.
“Abruzzi, Rome. It's a family-run restaurant, generous, tasty and deeply authentic.”
“Behind the scenes at a film or photoshoot. It's fascinating watching the lighting teams and stylists busy at work, tweaking every little detail, and each with a highly nuanced and specific role. To be a fly on the wall is a lot of fun, and with Sowvital I've been lucky enough to work on sets with some great photographers and videographers.”
“Paper-browsing at Fedrigoni's showroom in London. I love discovering interesting papers, which have textural quirks and inspired endless ideas for new creative projects.”
“Ted's Barbers - it's a treat to relax and have a shave and a haircut.”
“Tokyo: endlessly neat, precise and ordered, but bursting with ingenious creativity. ”
