Fiera magazine is designed to help readers discover new talent at the world’s furniture and product design fairs – and is set to launch this November having just reached its Kickstarter target…

The magazine, founded by Katie Treggiden (Confessions of a Design Geek) and magCulture’s Jeremy Leslie, has been raising funds on Kickstarter and will now put all extra money that it receives towards the production quality of the magazine, says Leslie.

Fiera’s intetion is to cover the world’s best new furniture and product design from the various fairs that take place all over the world; from London and Eindhoven, to Lodz and Prague.

According to the founders the front half of the magazine will contain “high-energy coverage from the coal-face of the festival circuit”. Editor Treggiden will also “share the stories of the people and processes behind the designs, bringing the shows to life in a way that you could only experience by being there yourself.”

In addition to this the magazine will include long-form content, macro trend analysis, and opinion from a range of disciplines such as creative writing, finance, and travel. (The images shown here are of a work in progress dummy edition made in preparation for issue one.)

Fiera is set to be a biannual, 160-page publication priced at £20. You can check out the Kickstarter for the project, here and also pre-order the magazine before it reaches the end of its campaign tomorrow at 14.59.
