Dirty Furniture is a new independent biannual design magazine that uncovers the relationship between people and the things they live with. The magazine’s goal is to take a lateral approach to writing about design; to be as interested in what happens after an item leaves the showroom as in that which saw it arrive there.
Dirty Furniture is conceived as a finite series of six, each taking a piece of furniture as its theme. Instead of dismissing furniture as a topic fit only for glossy lifestyle publications, Dirty Furniture will instead use it as a springboard to explore topics spanning politics, history, technology, psychology, manufacturing…and the plain weird.
In their third issue of Dirty Furniture they wonder why poo-bum jokes are funny, lament the loss of the public loo and stand for girls who stand. Sanitation in India is investigated, toilet paper unrolled, nappies reconsidered and we interview a farmer and a paleoscatologist.
