form 235 - November / December 2010
Cover story: Strong women
Do women design differently? Is the gender debate still relevant? And anyway, what do female consumers want? We investigate this in our comprehensive cover story. In the process, reputed female designers, theoreticians and researchers have their say – among them, Matali Crasset, Inga Sempé, Uta Brandes, Gesche Joost and Milan-based gallery owner Rossana Orlandi. We also introduce exciting young female designers.
