Modern Design Review
Edited by Laura Houseley and designed by Graphic Thought Facility
A new way to look at product and furniture design
Art-directed by GTF, Modern Design Review is a new covering modern product and furniture design. The dust-jacket illustrates the magazine’s content with components of Martino Gamper, Yrjö Kukappuro and Muller Van Severen’s products presented in a carved, flower-arrangers foam brick — referencing the Japanese art of Ikebana featured in this launch issue. The magazine templates provide structure and plasticity that allows each feature to forge its own visual direction. MDR’s own serif and sans-serif headline typefaces were created in conjunction with Housestyle to compliment the Starling and Haas Grotesk fonts used for the text setting.
