founded in milan in 1999, designboom is the world’s first online magazine worldwide. ‘designboom is known as the go-to designation for all things architecture,’ writes forbes magazine. ‘it’s a platform that is crazy popular too, as they’ve built up a cult following over 20 years.’

in january 2022, designboom joined forces with architonic and archdaily to consolidate our combined position as the world’s foremost destination for curated, inspiring, and relevant premium A&D content. the three platforms will continue to operate under their own mission and character, their uniqueness that made them your trusted online resource, but taking advantage of our synergies as one group: DAAily Platforms.

media is still the connective tissue of society, and compared to 1999, the internet has come a long way. during this time, creating a digital publication was still primarily the business of tech-savvy nerds, but online publishing has gone from something abstract to being a central element in how many of us live and work. 

designboom aims to bring together professional and young creatives from a diverse range of backgrounds. by publishing the latest news and key issues in the fields of architecture, design, technology and art, our mission over the past 20 years has remained the same: unearthing the best projects and curating a selection of the most interesting aspects of contemporary culture…before you can find it anywhere else. today, designboom is a comprehensive source with over 50,000 articles worth of useful information and insightful interviews, studio visits, documentation of new products, reviews of exhibitions and books, and historical surveys.

in 2007, TIME magazine chose designboom as one of the TOP 100 design influencers in the world, one of just eight online publications to be so named. in 2013, the webby awards selected designboom as an honorable mention in the category of best cultural blog and in 2014, were nominated for a webby in the category of best lifestyle.

in april 2014, we launched a chinese edition, and is already one of  the most popular online design and architecture magazines in mainland china. the site sees a selection of articles from our established english publication translated into mandarin, supplemented by local content that covers developments in the region’s creative scene, to give it added relevance to its targeted audience. designboom china brings the best of art, architecture, design and technology to the chinese community! find out more about our platform in asia’s largest country in our feature, here.

designboom undertakes innovative cultural exhibition projects and brings together designers and design entrepreneurs from around the world. inventing the pop-up phenomenon, since 2005, designboom’s readers have participated in our acclaimed temporary mart exhibitions inside international trade fairs in new york, stockholm, sydney, tokyo, and toronto.

this promotional activity culminates in a curated-commerce-space for exclusive products and collector items, sold directly from emerging/established designers and brands. in 2015, we introduced the readers SHOP! want to sell on the designboom and reach millions of readers? we look forward to working with you — please contact us > contact(at)
