Corriere della Sera’s latest issue of Casamica, Quale Design, was out just in time for Salone del Mobile. As usual, the comfy and of-the-moment magazine features excellent reading: there are features on Enzo Mari, Andrea Branzi, Faye Toogood, and Cappelini. There’s a look at the furniture branches of some of the big fashion houses – from Hermès to Margiela – and a look at that ever-divisive, über-iconic cross, through design eyes. 2DM’s Marco Klefish once again pops up throughout the issue, with hand-drawn portraits of the maker-shakers whose works are featured.

Karin Kellner, 2DM’s master of texture, made her debut in the magazine with a series of feature illustrations. For a roundtable discussion called “Design per il futuro,” she illustrated Rossana Orlandi, Denis Santachiara, Alessandro Vecchiato, and Carlo Urbinati. She also did a two ambient interior illustrations, one for a short article on the restaurant Gran San Bernardo. Karin, herself was once a student of design, and had a great time drawing the portraits, calling it a great way to “breathe creativity.”

“I love to capture expressions in watercolour… emphasising light and shadow,” said Karin. We’re thrilled with her work and can’t wait to see the next issue.
