About Eye on Design
Eye on Design #06 takes on a topic that has fascinated people—not just designers—for centuries. The term “utopia” was first coined in the 1500s by Sir Thomas More, who borrowed from the Greek ou-topos, meaning “no place.” And yet, when you consider utopia in relation to design, the immediate association is one rooted in a place in time, namely, in the histories of the Bauhaus and Constructivism, both of which have recently celebrated their 100th anniversaries.
In this issue, we look back at these movements before we look forward, and ask the question, “Do those singular, idealistic visions of modern design still have a place in our world?” This is not a yes-or-no question, and issue #06 of Eye on Design magazine explores the theme “utopias,” with nuanced stories, design, and perspectives from around the world—making it clear that there is no one-size-fits-all answer. Join us in celebrating our sixth magazine, with eco-conscious printing by Hemlock, beautiful paper by Neenah, and thoughtful, striking design by Na Kim.
“A crisply designed think tank of articles and essays; more literary journal than design showcase… Serious-minded and beautifully presented. An essential read for anyone interested in design.” —Creative Bloq
