Couch, table, toilet, closet, phone, and bed. Each of the six issues of the design magazine Dirty Furniture explores one topic. The latest issue review how we use our phone and how it uses us. The writers include many of my favourites. And without ordering the print edition, you can read Jay Owens write about why we call the iPhone sexy. Via Kristoffer.
Ps. I’m happy to receive more!
