Fiera is the biannual print magazine discovering new talent at the world’s design fairs – nominated for Best New magazine in the Magpile Awards just weeks after its launch last year.
The second issue covers four product and furniture design fairs: Northmodern, Copenhagen; the Stockholm Furniture Fair; Ambiente Frankfurt; and Milan Design Week. We start with a Kaleidoscope of everything we saw at the four fairs, organised by colour. Next, we explore some of those designs in more detail, through interviews with designers, articles about how the products are made, and features about the exhibitions they were found in. Finally, Opinion comprises long form essays offering context, insight and analysis.
New designers still believe in the impossible – a crucial trait if design is going to help solve the problems, large and small, that we face today. Fiera Magazine exists to make sure their ideas reach a wider audience.
The magazine is a joint venture between confessions of a design geek’s Katie Treggiden and magCulture’s Jeremy Leslie.
Issue 2 – launched earlier this month – covers Northmodern in Copenhagen, the Stockholm Furniture Fair, Ambiente Frankfurt and Milan design week.
"New designers still believe in the impossible – a crucial trait if design is going to help some of the problems, large and small, that we face today," Treggiden told Dezeen. "Fiera exists to make sure their ideas reach a wider audience."
