Woman Made: Great Women Designers, a collaboration between Kering and publisher Phaidon, highlights women designers and their contributions to design in order to inspire and educate the next generation of designers.

 

 

Kering and Phaidon are once again partnering for women through this book on design by women in different fields such as furniture, textiles, products and lighting. Over 200 women will be featured, representing 50 countries.

 

The partnership will also provide free content and resources on the new online platform: www.thewomanmade.com as well as a series of roundtables at academic design institutions in the United States. A $25,000 scholarship to support an undergraduate student for the upcoming academic year will also be awarded.

 

The platform will be enhanced with exclusive content from the book, including a full registry of the 200 designers, Q&As with designers Aljoud Lootah, Anna Karlin, Dina Nur Satti, Faye Toogood, Hella Jongerius, Lindsey Adelman, and Kim Colin, and three filmed studio visits from designers Mette Hay, Rosie Li, and Mimi Shodeinde. In an effort to connect with and inspire young design students, Tennessee State University, Rhode Island School of Design (RISD) and Savannah College of Art and Design (SCAD) will host design talks led by designers Lani Adeoye, Patricia Urquiola and Nada Debs.

 

We are thrilled to partner again with Phaidon on a platform that celebrates women in the arts. Woman Made flips the script on what has historically been a patriarchal industry, and highlights the most extraordinary objects made by women over the past 100 years. This partnership is a testament to Kering’s ongoing commitment to women’s empowerment and fits perfectly with our Women In Motion program. Through this initiative, we not only honor the contributions of talented women, but provide a platform to educate and inspire others. ” reveals Laurent Claquin, President of Kering Americas.

 

Phaidon is proud to champion the work of women product design pioneers around the world. Following the resounding success of Great Women Artists in 2019, we are thrilled to partner with Kering to further highlight the profound impact women have had and continue to have in the creative arts.” says Keith Fox, CEO of Phaidon.

 

The book goes on sale for $59.95 on October 13, 2021.
