Want to know which designers are shaking things up on the international design front? It is hard to keep up with what is coming out of Europe since some of the great magazines that championed modern design, showcasing Milan Furniture Fair news and Eindhoven design school grads, have closed. Architectural Digest assumes this role with their new Design Innovators section. Through write ups and video coverage, they delve into what is innovative, design driven and noteworthy now. They look at how these designers push the boundaries of material and form and why they are the one's to watch. You may know some on the list, like interior masters Roman and Williams and textile designer Suzanne Tick, but will be hearing about Danish architect Bjarke Ingels and British artist Paul Cocksedge for the first time. AD has eyes and ears around the globe, making this hunting and gathering a directional bellwether for what's next.
