The original content in Issue 2 includes a lengthy ‘Soft Section’ that addresses textiles and comfort in contemporary design through a number of affiliated stories, plus a counter essay on ‘Hardness’. A comprehensive conversation with the great Andrea Branzi is followed by homage to his work and, later, we pause to explore the ethereal work of Wonmin Park.
