A quarterly journal of design, Disegno #28 offers in-depth, long-form journalism and critical writing, as well as inspiring portraiture, arts photography and reportage, all of which provide a window onto contemporary design and surrounding fields.

Highlights from the issue include a discussion of the reverse-gentrification of Dumbo, hosted by Malika Leiper and Stephen Burks and including HEAD HI; an essay on the public communications surrounding the Covid-19 vaccine roll-out; an interview with Omer Arbel exploring his alchemy with copper and glass; a report into the future of the television set, featuring Erwan Bouroullec, Yves Béhar, and Daniel Rybakken; Beirut captured pre- and post-explosion by photographer Myriam Boulos; reflections on the interface design of online bookstores, from Amazon to Bookshop.org; a peek into Rimowa’s archives prompting dreams of travel in the time of Covid; a look, with Yair Neuman, at the hidden waste stream of dummy lenses in the glasses industry; and a roundtable in which friends, students, and collaborators remember the great Italian designer and thinker Enzo Mari.
