VISIONS BY is a knowledge platform with an annual magazine that addresses the different perspectives on materiality and material cultures from a critical and speculative research focus. It aims at generating awareness through materials beyond their physical properties and at considering materials as a new entitled discipline emerging from a design context.
Materials are inevitably linked to the evolution of humanity: they award identity, build heritage, and project futures. We focus on this social impact and perception of materials and the importance of materials in activating and dynamizing cultures and socioeconomic systems.
With annual presentations and participative performances by rising and consolidated designers, Visions By magazine issues are conformed by a curated eclectic mix of articles, photographic essays, interviews and case studies, englobing the different forms of understanding and exercising the material in a design context.
