Elizabeth Glickfeld, Founder and Editor of “Dirty Furniture”
Tue, April 25, 2017, 6:30 PM – 8:30 PM EDT
Dirty Furniture is a London-based independent design magazine that uncovers the relationship between people and the things they live with. Founded by Elizabeth Glickfeld, Anna Bates and Peter Maxwell as a platform for critical and experimental design writing, each issue takes a piece of furniture as its theme and uses it as a springboard to explore topics spanning politics, design, history, technology, psychology, manufacturing, art – and the plain weird.
Elizabeth will share the underpinnings of the magazine’s editorial and design ethos and tell the story – including both the thrills and the challenges – of sustaining an independent design magazine dedicated to publishing design writing that doesn’t necessarily fuel shopping.
Elizabeth Glickfeld is a design writer, editor, publisher and educator based in London, and co-founder and editor Dirty Furniture. Her writing has appeared in various publications including The Graphic Design Reader (Bloomsbury, upcoming), Eye, Disegno, Design Issues, Domus and Frieze.
