It’s here! Our just-launched December issue has all angles covered, from spirit-lifting architecture and design, to mind-expanding fashion, food and more.

Bringing his masterfully minimalist hand to our limited-edition subscriber cover, architect John Pawson also reveals his favourite London Design Museum details in an exclusive photo essay. In Miami, there’s concrete, culture and car-parking from OMA in the city’s Faena District; and we meet the gallerists-turned-producers making artists’ wildest dreams come true.

Picky Nicky discovers the sweet smell of successful olfactory experiences; and Swiss art kingpin Bruno Bischofberger creates a sharp-edged complex for his uncommon collections. Then, we launch our easy-build homes of the future, and look at tempting timepieces, tasteful tech and refined resort wear. William Kentridge, meanwhile, weaves magic with a tell-tale new artwork for Zegna’s London store.

With the festive season just around the corner, our thoughts turn to entertaining, the Wallpaper* way. We explore why orange wine is just fine, plus check out a Japanese whisky library and tasting installation in Spain. Elsewhere, we’re hunkering down with the new New Nordic cuisine and savoury tang of the Baltic Rim; and it’s all resort wear and relaxation at our Hamptons retreat.

Speaking of escapes, our intrepid travel editor takes us on another whistle-stop tour across the globe, from Copenhagen’s new Noma spin-off to Mexican spa retreats in the Yucatan, and cosy canalfront stays in Hamburg.

Providing more interiors inspiration, classic pieces from design museums around the world find a special place in our home, plus we delve into our treasury of top-notch toys for tuned-in technophiles. Finally, John Baldessari dishes up his recipe for polenta, spinach, bacon and eggs in the latest of our Artist’s Palate series.
