Happy New Year

Dear readers and subscribers, we would like to take this opportunity to extend every good wish to you for 2018.


We are already looking forward to bringing you the following themes in our magazine: In February, we will be looking at the phenomenon of failure and its creative potential which is essential, and yet rarely heeded, within evolution (not only in terms of creativity). In issue 277 of form, we will be on a quest to find the trends, protagonists, backgrounds, and innovations in Mexican design and taking a closer look at this country’s role as a progressive economic power as well as being a guardian of ancient traditions, and a conflict area shaken by crises. In our July/August magazine, we will be thinking about the points where weather and design meet, in recordings and visualisations, in fashion, in solutions to natural disasters and in dealing with the challenges of climate change. Our September/October issue will see us examining embodiment on a theoretical level, presenting practical examples, and daring to take a look at possible future scenarios. Finally in form 280, we will be asking what role design can play in visualising, overcoming or even eliminating boundaries of all kinds and bringing various communnities closer to one another – and which boundaries the discipline itself must discard to achieve this.


Yours, the form team
