"There is without doubt institutional prejudice in the furniture industry"

Opinion: there’s no excuse for excluding women from the design conversation in Milan, says Kieran Long who offers a ready-made Rolodex for a fairer male/female split.
This column is intended as a service to design, and to address a practical problem that is in acute focus during Milan furniture fair week. The problem is the shocking lack of women designers who are allowed to participate in product and furniture design, either as designers or voices in the discussion about the field.

Kieran Long provides us with a list of established and upcoming female designers while pointing out the gender gap in product design.
