Disegno No.3

Disegno No.3


23 October 2012

After six months of hard work, we are delighted to announce that Disegno No.3 is now available in stores and in our online boutique.

“Three points is the minimum necessary to make a stable structure in space – perhaps the same applies for an initiative in time.” Those were the words of one of Disegno’s first contributors, the writer and architect, Julian Worrall. It was a comment on the progress of Disegno and the fact that issue three was on its way.

Having documented key events in architecture, design and fashion since its launch in autumn 2011, Disegno is now proud to announce the release of its third edition for autumn/winter 2012-13. Launching on 23 October, Disegno No.3, will continue its own brand of in-depth design journalism, as set by the previous editions.

This issue features a cover of a garment from the 132 5 collection by Issey Miyake, photographed by Ola Bergengren, writing by Design Museum director and former Blueprint and Domus editor Deyan Sudjic and illustrations by Olof Svenblad, among others. The magazine continues to be printed on X-PER paper from Fedrigoni, giving it a tactile and luxurious feel.

Below, we run down a few things to look out for in the new issue.
