Dirty Furniture is an independent design magazine that uncovers the relationship between people and the things they live with. Conceived as a finite series of six, each issue takes 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.
In this issue:
The fourth issue of the independent design magazine that focuses on uncovering the relationship between people and the things we live with takes the closet as its theme. It considers things like decluttering, moths, fashion, modularity, and coming out, but also questions the need for storage when goods and items are constantly available and in flow. Through contributions by Alice Twemlow, Jeremy Atherton Lin, Philippa Snow, Rob Gallagher, Brian Dillon, and Clare Lyster, time capsules are excavated, portals are entered, and avatars are dressed. Additionally, the issue features an interview with an archivist and a storage hunter.
