'Dirty Furniture' is a new independent biannual design magazine that uncovers the relationship between people and the things they live with. Conceived as a finite printed series of six and showcasing design’s best writers and emerging talents, each issue takes a piece of furniture as its theme and uses it as a springboard to explore topics spanning politics, design, history, technology, psychology, manufacturing, art – and the plain weird. With Sam Jacobs on sitcoms, Joanne MsNeil on foam, Jeremy Millar on Freud, and much more.
In our second issue of Dirty Furniturewe wonder why sex on tables in the movies always spells disaster, study the table’s role in power-relations and ask what the Ikea Lack thinks it is doing in contemporary art. The future operating table is imagined, fake wood uncovered, joints exposed and we interview a police interrogator and an etiquette guru.
