Dezeen Magazine

About Dezeen

Dezeen is the world's most influential architecture, interiors and design magazine, with over three million monthly readers and more than seven million social media followers.

Our mission is simple: to set the agenda for the global architecture and design community by bringing it a carefully edited selection of the best architecture, interiors and design projects and news from around the world.

Dezeen was launched in November 2006 by Marcus Fairs, who ran the company together with founding director Rupinder Bhogal until his death in 2022.

In 2021, Dezeen was acquired by Danish media group JP/Politiken Media Group, which appointed Benedict Hobson and Wai Shin Li as co-CEOs of the company in 2022 following Marcus's death.

Today, Dezeen is the most visited architecture and design website in the world with readers on every continent and offices in London, New York and Shanghai.

Dezeen also runs Dezeen Jobs – the internet's most vibrant architecture and design jobs board and Dezeen Awards, an annual awards programme that identifies the world's best architecture, interiors and design.

In 2020 we created Dezeen Events Guide, the world's leading guide to architecture and design events around the world. Dezeen Showroom also launched in 2020 as an affordable space for brands to launch products and showcase their designers and projects. Our Dezeen School Shows and Dezeen Courses sections, which launched in 2021, provide a platform for schools to showcase their students' work and promote their courses respectively.

Our official WeChat account, which we launched in 2019, brings exclusive stories about the latest architecture, interiors and design projects around the world to our Chinese readers – all written in Simplified Chinese.

Dezeen is accredited by the Federation of Small Businesses' (FSB) Good Business Charter, which recognises responsible business behaviour.
