The year's finest furniture
A further limited edition cover for our awards issue celebrated Wallpaper’s Best City 2011: Rio de Janeiro. The Brazilian party capital is putting on its serious face as it gears up to host the 2014 World Cup and the 2016 Olympics, pouring money into impressive cultural projects, with former no-go areas now playing host to music venues and art galleries. This, combined with the simple fact that it's one of the most beautiful cities on earth, made it an obvious choice for the judges’ award.
Since we launched our limited edition cover project as part of Wallpaper* magazine's tenth anniversary celebrations in 2006, some of the biggest and brightest names in the worlds of art, architecture and design have created unique and memorable images, exclusively for our Wallpaper* subscribers. With the artists' inspiration ranging from elk to goldfish, from fashion to the future, here's the full cover story to date.
