A lot of things happened in Germany, Europe and the world within the past 60 years - in society, politics, economy and technology and therefore in design, too. form magazine is a contemporary witness of these changes, while being an influencer at the same time. The change is made visible in in the more than 250 issues of the design magazine. What started off as an idea of four creative people in 1957, is today a forum with many loyal subscribers, which offers orientation, sets key topics and stimulates the design discourse.
(from site:) "The facts are completely banal: women make up half of the world’s population and some women design. The vast majority of them use designed products daily. And yet, like in many other male-dominated industries, women are still less visible in design than their male colleagues. Even as users, in the design process they regularly disappear in the shadow of the standard white male. In form 287 we dedicate ourselves to the diverse perspectives that feminism opens up to design. We collect brilliant feminist design projects as well as outstanding designers and design experts. We talk to them about their work and experience in the industry and learn that design is never gender neutral."
