Look closely: the extraordinary images you see are not simply illustrations. They are room sets, painted in a three-dimensional studio and enhanced with actual products from each of the territories featured in the Global Design issue of Wallpaper* Magazine. Israeli illustrator Noma Bar has turned a pair of chairs by Jean Nouvel into eyes for the French newsstand cover, while an ink box by Babaghuri becomes the lips for Japan, and Andreas Engesvik’s candleholder gives bite to Scandinavia’s polar bear. See the full set of eight newsstand covers, designed for the eight design superpowers featured in the issue.
