Fiera. Issue One
Edited by Katie Treggiden and sub-editor Sara Norman
Fiera aims to help readers find emerging designers and share the stories behind products and projects featured at leading product and furniture fairs. Each issue includes a ’Kaleidoscope’ section, made up of photographs from featured fairs arranged by colour, as well as creative writing, interviews with designers and articles revealing their processes, techniques and inspiration.
The inaugural issue covers London Design Festival, Designblok in Prague, the Lodz Design Festival in Poland and the Biennale Interiur in Kortrijk, Belgium, and includes interviews with new design studio Otago, Markus Friedrich Staab, Caroline Olsson and homeware brand Tiipoli.
There’s also a look at curator Daniel Charny’s Brave Fixed World exhibition celebrating the repair movement, images from Joseph Grima’s installation, SQM, which guided viewers through a derelict building, exploring the evolving identity of the home, and a series of step–by–step guides in which designers explain the making of products from ceramics to jewellery.
