For nearly 30 years, Surface has been a leading authority in contemporary design, applying our discerning eye to the worlds of architecture, art, design, fashion, and travel, with a focus on how these fields shape and are shaped by contemporary culture.
We’ve particularly taken pride in introducing our readers to inimitable products. From furniture and homewares to fashion and textiles to objects of desire, products with an ethos of craftsmanship and originality have always earned the Surface endorsement. On that note, we’re thrilled to announce the launch of Design Dose, our new shoppable platform for covetable, special-edition, and must-have pieces of design.
So why now? Much like the world at large, the design industry has been turned upside down over the past year. Design fairs, often the premier stage to launch new products and collections, face an uncertain future. COVID-19 has ushered in a new normal, forcing us to fully embrace remote experiences and unfamiliar technologies. Interest in home design is surging as people rethink their living arrangements and adjust to the remote work paradigm shift. The e-commerce revolution has entered an exciting new phase, but with it comes the perils of fast-consumerism. Design Dose will take a more thoughtful approach, one that reflects our core values at Surface: provide intel to our audience, delight the senses, and above all else champion great design.
