Competition: five copies of Fiera magazine issue two to be won

Competition: Dezeen is offering five readers the chance to win a copy of the second issue of Fiera magazine – a print publication that presents new talent from international design fairs.

Fiera issue two

Congratulations to the winners! Susan Hoekstra from Switzerland, Colin Carrigan from Canada, Sally Alejeila from Jordan, Emma Palin from the UK and Natalie Newman from Croatia.

A joint venture between design journalist Katie Treggiden and Jeremy Leslie of magCulture, Fiera is printed biannually with a focus on different events and festivals in the design calendar.

The first issue was successfully funded on Kickstarter and published in November 2014, featuring London Design Festival, Prague's Designblok, Interieur Biennial in Belgium and Lodz Design Week.

Fiera issue two

Issue 2 – launched earlier this month – covers Northmodern in Copenhagen, the Stockholm Furniture Fair, Ambiente Frankfurt and Milan design week.

"New designers still believe in the impossible – a crucial trait if design is going to help some of the problems, large and small, that we face today," Treggiden told Dezeen. "Fiera exists to make sure their ideas reach a wider audience."

Fiera issue two

The magazine includes a feature called Kaleidoscope, which showcases 200 images of products taken by Treggiden across the four fairs, and organises them by colour.

"Kaleidoscope is an attempt to recreate the visual overload you experience at a design fair, but enables you to explore the products at a more leisurely pace," explained Treggiden.

Fiera issue two

"A reference number on each image is repeated wherever that design is explored in more detail later in the magazine, and links to a directory at the back of the magazine when you can find each designer's contact details," she added.

Fiera issue two

An opinion section includes essays that explore themes that were apparent at all four shows.

The second issue includes The Soft Power of the Design Fair by Tom Morris, A Call to Design by Mapping Not Tracing by Jane Norris, and Does the World Need Another Chair? by John Miller.

Fiera issue two

"The long-form essays offer context and analysis in an attempt to make sense of it all," explained Treggiden.
