Dirty Furniture Issue 5 – Phone€18.50
The design magazine’s fifth issue investigates the phone. Dive headlong into the world of 5G, dominatrices reclaiming the internet, scams and phreaking, the undersea cable network, inventor Antonio Meucci, the GPS of monarch butterflies, calling the dead, and perhaps even a phone shaped like a strawberry.
Dirty Furniture is an independent 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; we are 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 instead uses it as a springboard to explore topics spanning politics, history, technology, psychology, manufacturing…and the plain weird.
